: ESCAPE TO THE SKIES

What thoughts are his, in the high airt
Flight
-to the poet, the great liberation with beauty on every side
-to the pilot, a practical trade
—to the passenger, a delight, or a nightmare
From King's Cup Air Race to Red Arrows aerobatic team in gliders and powered planes; this film explores the thoughts-lyric and prosaic-of those who take to the air.
Produced by DEREK TRIMBY from Wales
Producer Derek Trimby had been reading a collection of poems about flying just before he met the chief instructor of a local flying club, and was full of the wonder of flight, the beauty of cloudscape, the excitement and freedom of the air. But he soon discovered that flying is essentially a practical trade. This clash was the starting point for tonight's film which sets out to explore the poetic and prosaic attitudes to man's flight

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.
