: One Pair of Eyes: We're Coming into our Own

'We're coming into our own' is Arthur Dooley's message in this series of highly personal films

'The core of Christianity is the Resurrection,' says Dooley, 'because the Resurrection is about hope and life.'

Arthur Dooley, the internationally famous Liverpool sculptor, believes that the message of Christ is that mankind can triumph now. Since the war Dooley has watched his Liverpool 'torn apart by big business, politicians and soulless planners' out of touch with humanity. The hope lies with ordinary people realising their potential, resurrecting their own dynamic culture.

He takes us through his devastated city to meet some of these people: the street painters by the Bluecoat Chambers; the pub poets and protest song writers; one of the last fishermen on the polluted Mersey; Interviewee of the Tuebrook Bugle; Bill Shankly of Liverpool Football Club; and the men of the Mersey shipyards, 'the true artists of the nation in whom I put my faith.'

The film also shows some of the sculpture - the Dachau Crucifixion, the Splitting of the Atom, the Stations of the Cross-that has placed Dooley in the international class.

: Sport Two: Harambee for Munich

Colin Welland and Ian Wooldridge
The actor-playwright and sports-writer-of-the-year continue their look at the summer sports scene.

The Swahili word Harambee, meaning 'Let's pull together,' has become the slogan of Kenya's athletes in their drive for Munich. The Kenyans are rightly proud of their Olympic achievements and renewed challenge for gold medals, but underlying political tensions could pose a future threat to Harambee.

This specially filmed feature includes the athletes' native village background... talent at schools level... Kip Keino and others at work, in training, at the final Olympic trials and talking to reporter Ron Pickering.
(In three weeks Kip Keino is the cover star of the second Radio Times Olympic issue)

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.
