: Chronicle The Realms of Gold

Four hundred and fifty years ago the Old World and the New stood face to face-the Aztec emperor Montezuma with his vast military civilisation versus the Spaniard Hernan Cortes and a mere 400 men. Cortes won, but this astonishing victory would have been impossible but for the unbelievable fact that Montezuma saw Cortes as his god, the Feathered Serpent Quetzalcoatl.
John Julius Norwich , in a film made on the sites where it took place, recounts the interplay of mythology and mounted warfare, of human sacrifice and brilliant strategy which led ultimately to the creation of Mexico.
Written and introduced by JOHN JULIUS NORWICH

: Charles Aznavour at the Talk of the Town

Part 1
The first of two programmes in which this remarkable international artist performs his own compositions
Charles Aznavour is a determined individualist who for the last 20 years has sung only songs that he had either written or composed himself. They're personal songs, songs about love, sometimes nostalgic, sometimes funny, sometimes sexy. ' For every love there is a song ' he jokes with his audience. 'I must have written ... more than 1,000 songs.' With ALYN AINSWORTH and his Orchestra

The weekly arts magazine presented by James Mossman
How to Stage Fights: William Hobbs is Fight Director of the National Theatre. He has won acclaim for his thrilling skirmishes in Zeffirelli's stage production of Romeo and Juliet, for fights in the National's Othello; in the stage musical The Four Musketeers and the film HMS Defiant.
Review finds out how Hobbs makes his clashes look authentic without cutting the cast to ribbons. To show how his technique differs from the famous duels of Errol Flynn and Douglas Fairbanks Sr , he has produced for Review a new version of the Romeo fight.

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.
