: Whicker's World: It's Not Part of Their Seamanlike Duties to Dance

with Alan Whicker

The Sea Cruise is for those who can afford so much more than a holiday camp.
Tonight's film joins the affluent flotsam to find out what the £15-a-day cruisers are seeking. Is it fun and friendship? Moonlight and romance?
"I am always on the lookout for another Lonely Heart."
"In the early years the passengers were more what I'd call Ordinary English families."
"Well you wouldn't hear such a remark from a first-class passenger normally, would you?"
"Widows come alone, not necessarily to meet men of course, but it's nice to, isn't it?"

: King Kristiern II

A dramatic new ballet by Harald Lander to music by Jean Sibelius based on the romantic and bloody reign of Christian II, King of Denmark and Sweden at the time of Henry VIII of England.
Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra
Conducted by Stig Westerbers

In a dungeon of his own castle the ageing King relives the events in his life which have led to his imprisonment. Through his youthful love for Dyveke. a peasant girl, he becomes the protector of the common people, and because of this many members of the Swedish nobility will not acknowledge him as King. At the Coronation the Archbishop denounces the King's enemies; Kristiern reluctantly authorises their death. The memory of this mass execution haunts him vividly in his old age.
Commissioned and produced by the Danish and Finnish Television Services as part of the recent Sibelius centenary celebrations

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
