: The Space Between Words

First shown early in 1972, this series shows four situations in which people try to communicate. 2: Work
A modern electronics factory in Dorset. A nice place to work, with intelligent, sympathetic people in management and the unions. But in two days the system virtually breaks down, with the factory on the brink of a strike when a seemingly well-meant management productivity scheme is seen as a threat to men's jobs. An accidental leak and the sudden arrival of management consultants, forces management and unions to take up their positions. The programme follows both sides, their strategy, thinking, and goals.

: The Gates of Asia

Six programmes on the civilisations of Turkey
Written and introduced by John Julius Norwich
5: Armenia and the Seljuks
This week's programme is a portrait of two remarkable races, the Armenians and the Seljuks.
The Armenians, a Christian nation on the eastern borders of the Byzantine Empire, developed a brilliant tradition of architecture and sculpture, which can still be seen at Ani, a ruined city on the Russian frontier, and in the perfect island-cathedral of Akhtamar.
Lord Norwich shows evidence that the Seljuk Turks, by contrast, were Islamic nomads from central Asia, who soon learnt to build elegant bridges, caravanserais, mosques, and a chain of breath-taking castles along the shore of the Mediterranean.

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.
