: The Life of a Cathedral

A personal view by Gyles Brandreth
Two hundred thousand people visited Wells Cathedral last year, many of them just to see the famous clock. But what do the tourists know about the everyday business of keeping this great building alive?
GYLES BRANDRETH went to the Cathedral to find out more about the community, which runs not only a religious institution but a business.

: Throwing Out The Cobwebs

A film about Peter Brook
When Peter Brook 's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream opened on Broadway, the New York theatre critic, Clive Barnes , described it as ' ... without any equivocation the greatest production of Shakespeare I have seen in my life.' Now it is playing to packed houses at the Aldwych Theatre in London.
In Brook's ' Dream 'there are no cobwebs and shimmering wings. Instead the lovers - pursue each other in a white walled gymnasium, Puck and Oberon juggle plates and swing on trapezes; virtually all the established conventions are challenged.
Tonight's film shows extracts from
The Dream, scenes from some of Brook's previous productions for the Royal Shakespeare Company and a long interview first shown on Review in which Brook talked to JAMES MOSSMAN about his work and aspirations in the theatre.

: Augustine of Hippo

In 410 AD 'eternal' Rome fell to the barbarians. Augustine, the bishop of a small town in the province of Numidia, saw that the Roman Empire was doomed, and set himself the task of showing how a Christian civilisation might rise from its ruins. He wrote The City of God, which became the inspiration of ' the grand fiction of the Holy Roman Empire.'
In North Africa and Italy the film traces the story of how this passionate young African developed the massive intellect and deep spiritual insight which changed the face of the Western world.

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.
