: 2nd House

An anthology for January highlighting some of the month's events in music, books, theatre, film and the visual arts.
Introduced by Melvyn Bragg from Morley College in South London

Tubular Bells
A studio performance of MIKE OLDFIELD 'S rock music composition which has been acclaimed in the musical press as a unique achievement in popular music.
Without borrowing anything from established classics, or descending to the discords, squeals and burps of the determinedly avant-garde, Mike Oldfield has produced music which combines logic with surprise, sunshine with rain
One of the most mature, vital, rich and humorous pieces of music to emerge from the pop idiom (MUSICAL EXPRESS) A rock masterpiece (THE GUARDIAN) In the 2nd House studio, MIKE OLDFIELD leads a band which brings together some of the country's leading rock musicians, including MICK TAYLOR, STEVE HILLAGE, FRED FRITH and TED SPEIGHT (guitars); MIKE RATLEDGE, JOHN GREAVES and TIM HODGKINSON (keyboards); with PIERRE DE STRASBOURG (percussion).
Visually, the music is complemented by images from the tubular steel sculptures of WILLIAM PYE , and sequences from his film Reflections.

John Fuller
A film profile of the poet and Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, whose latest book Epistles to Several Persons is published this week by Seeker and Warburg. The book is a series of verse-letters to John Fuller 's friends: a poet and member of International Socialism, a fellow don, another poet celebrated but feared for his criticism, and a Marxist novelist.

Thirty years ago GUSTAV MAHLER was a musical joke - writing symphonies that needed an army to perform and lasted until the small hours. A cult figure in the 50s, now he's big box-office, due in no small measure to the movies. Death in Venice brought the 5th Symphony to a public unfamiliar with Mahler, and this spring KEN RUSSELL 'S new film biography of the composer opens in the West End.
Tonight 2nd House examines the impact of Mahler's work, with excerpts from Russell's film, and in conversation with the director. We also hear Mahler's personal testament, the Ruckert songs, performed by YVONNE MINTON , considered to be among the world's great lieder artists.

The Eye of the Storm
An award-winning film from America which documents a young teacher's attempt to explain the meaning of prejudice and discrimination to her eight-year-old pupils - by experience.
On the first day of the experiment the blue-eyed children were designated as the ' privileged class ' and the brown-eyed children were treated as inferiors. On the second day, the roles were reversed. The children's reactions to this experience provide a unique insight into the nature of discrimination, and its effects.

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.
