A second chance to see the award-winning film
This startling study of a lonely I saint ' SUN
The most remarkable documentary programme for a long time
An absorbing documentary THE TIMES
Last September a priest called Padre Pio died in a remote convent near Foggia in the South of Italy. For fifty years he had borne on his body five bleeding wounds corresponding to the five wounds of Christ. Countless people believed he worked miracles-that he cured the sick, was capable of being in two places at once, and that he had a terrifying insight into men's minds. A hundred thousand people attended his funeral; they included scientists and doctors, bishops and cardinals, as well as the local people who loved him and who had built up a thriving tourist industry during his lifetime.
Filmed in the last months of his life, this is the story of the life and death of the priest they called a saint.
This film received the first prize in the documentary category at the First International Christian Television Week at Monte Carlo
Written and narrated by PATRICK O'DONOVAN
Produced by Miscai Scores

: Out of the Unknown: Get Off My Cloud

by Peter Phillips
dramatised by David Climie
with Donal Donnelly, Peter Jeffrey, Peter Barkworth and Vicki Woolf
A brilliant writer of science fiction fantasies has had a mental breakdown. Although lying inert on a hospital bed, in his mind he is living in the midst of one of his own fantasies. In an attempt to bring him back to reality, a doctor uses a new device to link the writer's mind to that of the most level-headed man he knows, an Irish sports reporter. When the sports reporter finds himself in the weird world created by the deranged writer, he wonders if he was wise to take on the job.

Weltspiegel, Continents sans Visa A Toda Plana , Estafeta, Realta
These are just some of the television programmes in both West and East Europe which regularly contribute to Europa. The programme has been called a European window on the world. Each week it looks at the stories and issues that have informed, entertained, and sometimes angered viewers across a continent.
It examines their attitudes and prejudices and, in so doing, perhaps recognises some of our own.
Introduced this week by Jack Pizzey

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.
