: Chronicle One People between the Alps and the Sea!

by STUART HOOD
A cannonade, then a sudden infantry charge over the shattered walls of Rome exactly a century ago completed the making of the Kingdom of Italy.
The Risorgimento was a succession of violent battles and bloodier repressions. From it emerged Garibaldi, Mazzini, and Cavour - heroes of the nation. But who were their enemies? Who were the men, like the infamous King Bomba of Naples, wh.-. resisted the tide of unity?
This programme retells, with the vivid pictures of the day and in the actual settings of its major events, the story of those great years which had, even then, the force and form of legend.

Martial's Rome
The Latin poetry of Martial is famous for its vivid and bawdy portrait of the people who lived in ancient Rome. Now Australian poet PETER PORTER has produced translations which bring these racy Latin epigrams, and the people in them, back to life.
In tonight's film Martial, played by John Ronane , recites his work and supplies his own running commentary. It's a performance to remind us that Martial is one of the great poets of Rome's Silver Age
Directed by JULIAN COOPER
Too much damned architecture ... So says Stockholm-based British architect Ralph Erskine who for 30 years has been building cold-weather houses the Swedes love to live in. Review sent JOHN VAUGHAN to see Erskine and film his work, from a new community at Clare Hall, Cambridge, to miners' homes at Svappavaara on the Arctic Circle.

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.
