: The Six and Britain

Introduced by Derek Hart and Brian Widlake Six programmes on the Common Market
4: A Question of Money
The Deutschmark crisis last month threw the Common Market into disarray and showed that the plans drawn up for a European currency are a long way from the realities of the international money market. Britain was on the sidelines then, but, if we join, the Six would almost certainly want to end our role as banker to the world. But has Britain other financial skills which could work to our advantage in the Common Market?

: Review

Introduced by David Jones Robert Lowell and Jonathan Miller
Robert Lowell is America's outstanding living poet. He is also a considerable dramatist for whom the ancient myth of Prometheus who stole fire from the gods and was punished for his audacity has a special meaning. In his own version of Aeschylus's tragedy Prometheus Bound, the intellectual rebel is pitted against political tyranny in a drama which Lowell sees as a parallel with the condition of contemporary America.
DAVID JONES introduces Kenneth Haigh in scenes from the play. which opens next week at the Mermaid Theatre, and ta)ks to Robert Lowell and the director Jonathan Miller about the reasons for the adaptation and the ideas behind the play.
Mischa Dichter , a New Yorker, bom in Shanghai of Polish parents, is the latest in a !ong )ine of American pianists to have distinguished himself on the international circuit. He won the Silver Medal in the Tchaikovsky Competition - one of the most coveted pianistic honours. Tonight he plays one of Liszt's Mephisto waltzes.
(David Jones is a member of the Roya) Shakespeare Company)

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.
