: Look, Stranger: Glastonbury

There is a legend that sometime during the years which followed the Crucifixion, Joseph of Arimathea brought the teaching of Christ to the Druids in Glastonbury, and built there the first Christian church in the world.
A week in June this year began with a hippie gathering to celebrate the Summer Solstice on Glastonbury Tor, and ended with the Church of England pilgrimage to the Abbey ruins-within virtual earshot of the Pop Festival at neighbouring Shepton Mallet.
John Shelly is a potter who lives and works at the foot of the Tor. For him, Glastonbury is the heart-centre of England - the place where a new spirit took root at the dawn of the Christian era. Among the hippies, 'the angelic generation,' he finds signs of the birth of a new spirit for a new era - as we enter the Age of Aquarius.

: Out of the Unknown: Get Off My Cloud

by Peter Phillips
Dramatised by David Climie
With Donal Donnelly as Pete, Peter Jeffrey as Craswell, Peter Barkworth as Stephen and Vicki Woolf as Garor

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.

: World Cinema: Kangchenjunga

A series of outstanding feature films from more than 20 different countries.
This week: from India starring Chhabi Biswas

A wealthy Bengali businessman dominates his family and forces them to help him increase his own wealth and prestige. But on holiday in the shadow of Kangchenjunga mountain he finds himself unable to justify his principles when challenged by an unemployed amateur philosopher. Never shown publicly in Britain, Kangchenjunga, Satyajit Ray's first colour film and the first he scripted himself, is much tauter than his earlier work. In fact, the action covers only one-and-a-half hours, the duration of the film itself
Written and directed by Satyajit Ray

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
