: The World About Us

A Monk from the Marble Temple
A young man leaves his home; he leaves his family, friends, possessions, even his clothes. He attends a ceremony where all the hair is shaved from his head and face. He goes on to promise that he will live by 227 rules of conduct .. , one of the rules being that he must live from the proceeds of begging.
In Thailand there is nothing unusual about this. Most young men become Buddhist monks, perhaps for a month as a gesture of thanks and respect to their parents, perhaps for a lifetime. In Thailand, as in the other countries of South-East Asia, Buddhism is a dominant part of life. Its influence is as much social and cultural as religious. And despite the fact that these countries are living through turbulent and bloody times, the Buddhist religion makes them in many ways peaceful and tranquil places, where the pattern of life is defined as much by the change of season as by the change of government.

Profile in Music
Winner of the 1975 Classical Music Programme category of the Emmy Awards
This is the first time that a BBC music programme has received an Emmy Award: and in this case there were two - one for American opera singer BEVERLY SILLS, the other for BBC television producer, PATRICIA FOY.
' It was the longest night of my life,' says BeverJy When people claim that she was an ' overnight' success. In fact she started out, aged three, on radio, progressing very slowly to the City Opera. The ' Super Star' of the operatic world talks to Bernard Levin and sings arias from some of her most famous roles.

: Sunday Cinema: China is Near

starring
Glauco Mauri Elda Tattoli
Paolo Graziost with Daniela Surina Pierluigi Apra China is Near (the Maoist slogan painted on walls and posters throughout Italy) is a hilarious and ironic satire on contemporary Italian society.
As a protest against his provincial Italian middle-class family, Camillo has joined a Maoist group. The encounters of his highly conventional brother and sister with certain working-class elements provide some political - as well as romantic - complications.

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.
