Michael and Rachel, both aged 7, attend the same school. Although Michael is Roman Catholic and Rachel Jewish , their different backgrounds do not stop them becoming fast friends.
But then something happens which reveals the barrier between them: their religion. With disarming logic Michael and Rachel decide to test the strength of their bond of friendship.

: The Sorrowand the Pity

Another opportunity to see this remarkable film adapted by Marcel Ophuls from his original production Le Chagrin et ta Pitié which tells the human story of France under the Occupation. Occupiers and occupied, collaborators and resistance fighters, politicians, generals, peasants and private soldiers recount their experiences with astonishing frankness, unfolding a picture of events that is very far from the popular image of this critical phase of the war years.
A vivid, poignant, true account-far removed from the fiction which has so long coloured our image of life under the Nazis

Barrie Gill and Gordon Wilkins cover the world of motoring. with MAXWELL BOYD
Motoring holidays abroad will be more expensive in 1972 because fares across the Channel and insurance Green Cards are going up in price. Are these higher costs fair? The motoring adventure of 1972 will be an attempt in Range Rovers to cross the Darien Gap - 200 miles of ravines, swamp, and jungle - which is the last barrier to a highway between
North and South America At home, the New Year will see more lorries of 30 tons and over coming on to British roads. What impact will they have on pedestrians, buildings, and the private cars which have to share the road with them?

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.
