: Bird's-Eye View: John Bull's Workshop

by Correlli Barnett
What is your dream? Three cars and a yacht in your garage, a heated pool in your garden and six months' holiday a year? Is that the world you hope to create for your children? It could happen if we continue to invent and develop the new ideas that make us rich, and if we don'underrate the achievements of our present-day world.
Filmed from the air the programme traces the rise of industry from early beginnings - the monks' forge of Kirkstall Abbey, the weavers' village of Worstead. The helicopter flies low among the Rhondda pit-heads, races with Lotus cars, hovers by a jump-jet. Below it models leap for a photocall, and Princess Anne launches the largest ship built in Britain.

A survey of conductors and conducting, with film of Arthur Nikisch
Willem Mengelberg
Wilhelm Furtwangler Felix Weingartner
Richard Strauss , Sir Edward Elgar Sir Thomas Beecham Serge Koussevitzky
Bruno Walter , Leopold Stokowski Leonard Bernstein and GEORG SOLTI , WILLIAM MANN GEORGE HURST , SIDNEY HARRISON ENGLISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA leader KENNETH SILLITO with performances by PETER REEVES
Narration BOB GRANT
As Toscanini said, 'Any asino can conduct, but to make music ... eh? Is difficile.' To be a conductor is the dream of many and there is no shortage of hopeful candidates. But the orchestral conductor's art remains something of a mystery. Just what he does and how he obtains his results can be unknown factors even to regular concertgoers.
Thanks in part to rare archive film, we see in action some of the important figures of the earlier part of this century - the period generally called the Golden Age of conductors.
Eye-witness accounts of the days before film are also used to show how and why conducting started in the first place.
Produced by FRANCIS COLEMAN

: A Year in the Life for King Kathie 100/7

June 1968 - June 1969
In the autumn of 1968 at the Newmarket Sales nearly £4million was spent in the difficult search for good racehorses. A Year in the Life follows a horse through its crucial first year of training. GUY HARWOOD, its trainer, must justify the owner's outlay by producing a winner.
After a year of effort Race Day arrives and everyone is hopeful. The trainer expects a place, the owner has laid out a big bet, but the bookies are not so sure he will win because they have made King Kathie 100/7.

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.
