: Look, Stranger: In the Footsteps of Tess

We like to make legends into fact - to believe in King Arthur, Lorna Doone, or Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Tess haunts the Dorset countryside that Hardy wrapped around her sad, beautiful life. The cottage where she was born, the byre where she worked as a milkmaid - it's all there, as if she had lived. In this week's programme Desmond Hawkins looks at Dorset from her point of view and his own.

: People for Tomorrow: It's just that we like to dance...

declares Norman Morrice, the young artistic director of the Ballet Rambert, who has set himself the challenge, for the 1970s, of building up a new tradition of modern dancing for the Rambert, for years a strictly classical company. The challenge involves not only re-educating the dancers but finding a new, young audience that will respond to these unfamiliar and exciting forms of ballet. "Nowadays", says Morrice, "we go out into the streets to look for our costumes, our images and our movements".

: World Cinema: Double Bill: Michelangelo Antonioni's La Notte

The first of two films by one of Italy's most accomplished directors
Starring Jeanne Moreau, Marcello Mastroianni. Monica Vitti

After the captivating mystery of L'Avventura, Antonioni directed this perceptive, subtle and utterly unsentimental account of the gradual disillusionment and compromise which leads to a broken marriage. Jeanne Moreau 's compelling personality dominates the film, and Monica Vitti (the vivacious star of Antonioni's later films) and Marcello Mastroianni are overshadowed by her performance.

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.
