: Sir Mortimer and Magnus

Second of six conversations The Festival Dig
One afternoon in 1951 a civil servant entered Professor Wheeler's office. Do you represent the King? ' asked Wheeler. Not exactly, sir,' replied the visitor, ' I represent the Ministry of Works.' Sir Mortimer Wheeler talks to Magnus Magnusson about the excavation which arose out of that meeting, when he uncovered the Iron Age stronghold of the Brigantes, at Stanwick in Yorkshire, as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations.

1: The Palestinian Guerrilla
'It was a violent entry into the minds of the people of the world but what is important to us is that it was an entry ' - a Palestinian guerrilla talks to Man Alive about the dramatic multiple hijacking in 1970 he helped to mastermind.
The programme traces the origins of the apparently illogical acts of violence, the skyjackings and the political kidnappings.
JEANNE LA CHARD talks to some of the men and women behind them, including Leila Khaled , who gives her first ever television interview to the West, and to men like Chancellor Kreisky of Austria and General Dayan of Israel who have had to make the agonising choice between whether to sacrifice hostages or give in to blackmail.

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.
