: The Pilgrimage of Everyman

A Journey to
Santiago de Compostela with Edwin Mullins
Next week in Santiago de Compostela, the annual festival of St James 's Day will take place with its customary spectacle and splendour.
There is a legend that the body of the apostle James, brother of John, was buried in North West Spain.
Around the tomb a city grew up in honour of the fisherman who was to become the patron saint of Spain, and throughout the Middle Ages' his shrine attracted more pilgrims than anywhere else in Europe.
EDWIN MULLINS follows some of the paths the pilgrims trod from England, through France and northern Spain, and ends in Santiago as it celebrates its annual festival.

: Sporting Profile

Samurai - Sumo Survival
Fat is Fit. The Sumo Wrestlers of Japan, pride of the Emperor, beloved of the Geisha, eat their way into condition for their most punishing sport. The training schedule is a ritual designed to shape theiT huge physiques into human battering rams. A Sumo bout is short but savage and surrounded with colourful ceremony.
Fully aware that Sumo can shorten their lives by up to 15 years, the Sekitori, the name given to the top rank of wrestlers, willingly, almost amiably, accept the harsh punishment of their chosen sport.
The worship of Sumo - the national sport of the Japanese-their obsession with golf and baseball, the stylish grace and beauty of gymnastics makes Japan a fascinating subject for the first of Vincent Hanna 's investigations into sport.

The Great American Railroads
Today the much-sung Wabash, Rock Island, Rio Grande and Santa Fe still straddle the United States, but the last 3t) years have spelt a steady decline. Now the Energy Crisis promises a new boom, with railroads busier than ever in their history. But, paradoxically, it's a boom that could be the seed of their destruction, the death-blow to the last great private system in the world, as Brian Widiake reports.

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.
