Illustrator (The Circus):
As the number of European television channels increases and the grand total of viewers tops more than 400,000-million, the field and scope of television reports widen to cover the entire world. Each week Europa selects some of the films which have interested viewers across a continent - films which show how Europe is looking at itself and at the rest of the world.
Introduced by Derek Hart
If you work in rep you can never hope to get the real feel of a part because just when you think you might the week is over and you are on to something else. This is true not only for the actors but also for the producer who is rehearsing next week's play amongst the sets of the current production. The second of Review's three films about modern Repertory Theatre takes a look at "What the Butler Saw" in Ipswich.

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.
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.
