JEANNE LA CHARD , JOHN PITMAN JACK PIZZEY , DESMOND WILCOX HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week:
Strictly for the tourists
Tourism is Britain's largest dollar earner. Our culture and heritage are one of our most important invisible exports. Although the number of Australians and Europeans coming to England rises every year, the majority of visitors are American, in search, perhaps, of a past they feel does not exist in their own country.
What they want to see is Changing the Guard, Stratford, a couple of castles and with any luck, a living, breathing earl or marquis. JEREMY JAMES has been looking at the new tourist boom - at the package tourists who do Europe in a fortnight and Britain in three days, and can go off the beaten track with a stage coach and a country weekend.

: The Gates of Asia

3ix programmes on the civilisations of Turkey
Written and introduced by John Julius Norwich
2: The Coming of the Greeks
In pre-Christian times ' Greece ' included the whole Aegean coast of what is now Turkey. Here all the most splendid achievements of Greek civilisation flowered: temples, theatres, harbours, and even one of the seven wonders of the world, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus.
This programme explores the great cities, now marooned by the retreating sea, which stiJl breathe the atmosphere of Greek civilisation at the peak of its creative power.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
