A series of seven films about aspects of their past made by seven European countries. 3: The Legacy of the Dukes of Burgundy
In the 15th century the Dukes of Burgundy ruled the area which included most of modern Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and a large part of eastern France; under the enlightened patronage of Duke Philip the Good, Bruges became a European capital of the Arts.
This film, made by Belgian Television, looks at the achievements of the Burgundian world and at everyday life in the late Middle Ages as it is depicted in paintings, carvings and illuminated manuscripts.

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.
