: Europa: Britain and Europe

'Only 30 kilometres separate England from the continent - half an hour in a hovercraft. And yet the British Isles and Europe are separated by centuries. Centuries of separate development.'
That quotation from an Austrian television film sums up the subject of tonight's special hour-long edition of Europa: How does England stand in relation to Europe on the very first day of 1971? Europa will be seeking the views of foreign television stations, of foreign correspondents working in Britain, and of Britons who live and work in countries within the Common Market.

: Review: Peter Brook

Introduced by James Mossman.

"We must open our empty hands and show that really there is nothing up our sleeves. Only then can we begin".
Thus Peter Brook describes his radical approach to the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Gone the magic world inhabited by fairies with wings and wands: instead the lovers pursue each other in a white gymnasium. Puck and Oberon juggle plates, walk on stilts and swing on trapezes.
Tonight Review shows extracts from Brook's "Dream", together with scenes from two of his earlier productions, "Marat/Sade" and "US", as part of a programme devoted to the work and development of one of Britain's boldest and most original directors.

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.

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.
