The Andalusian poetry of Garcia Lorca
Federico Garcia Lorca , poet and playwright, was born near Granada in 1898 and was shot by an unknown group of people in July 1936 at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War
Though of an educated family himself, Lorca derived much of his inspiration from the lives, customs, and music of peasants and gypsies. Photographed for the most part in Andalusia, this colour film seeks to re-create Lorca's world through the medium of his poetry.

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.
