: Outlook for Tuesday: Pasen Vdes! (Come This Way): Part 3

A six-part discovery of Spain by Nicholas Baum, Professor of English at the University of Granada, Spain

Granada, the last Moorish stronghold, fell to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella in 1492, and Spain was nominally again a united Christian Kingdom. But this unity was more apparent than real, for regional differences and disputes continue to this very day.

: Horizon: Sleep and Dreams

A review of the sciences introduced by Christopher Chataway.

Joel, a healthy young American, is reduced to a restless neurotic state after being deprived of his dreams for three nights.
Mr. Bates, an eighty-four-year-old ex milkman, has never dreamed in his life, or so he says until he is woken by scientists in the middle of a dream trip to New York.
These are two examples of the surprising facts that experimental psychologists are now finding out about sleep and dreams, in a specialised sleep laboratory at the University of California at Los Angeles.
Tonight Horizon looks at the work of the men who start work when everyone goes to bed and who have disproved many of our preconceptions about sleep and dreams.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
