: Spirit of the Age

Eight films on eight centuries of British Architecture
3: The Cult of Grandeur Written and narrated by Robert Furneaux Jordan
The period following the Restoration of Charles II was one of the most glorious in British architecture. Confident, aristocratic and grand it was dominated by three of England's most famous architects - Sir Christopher Wren , Sir John Vanbrugh and Nicholas Hawksmoor. At St Paul's Cathedral and in the City of London, at Blenheim Palace and Castle Howard, their great masterpieces, ROBERT FURNEAUX JORDAN examines both their achievements and the age that produced them.

: Prince Charles, Pilot Royal....

Tonight, on Prince Charles's 27th birthday, a remarkable film of his flying career in the Royal Navy.
In a candid and delightfully informal atmosphere the Heir to the Throne is seen on his first solo flight in a helicopter; his first parachute drop; learning to escape from a crashed helicopter submerged in a tank of water and-in the middle of it all - returning from a tour of duty under canvas in a remote part of Canada, for his investiture as Great Master of the Order of the Bath. ' I'm one of those hopeless characters who likes trying all sorts of things.' jo DOUGLAS who produced Pilot Royal with her husband Christopher Doll directing writes:
' Because both of us fly, we were interested in the number of ' Pilots Royal' there are around the world. Prince Bernhardt of the Netherlands has flown over 100 different types of aircraft, King Hussein of Jordan flies fighters, the Shah of Iran's ambition is to handle Concorde personally.
'They all spend so much time in the air on official business that it's only one step to taking the controls. I think that it has the added attraction of being a situation in which they are uniquely in control.
' They also all have so much to do in so little time. Prince Charles has had to push himself through some of the training courses in a fraction of the normal time-because of his other official duties -by dint of sheer hard work.
It seemed to us that his fellow-officers were determined not to be seen giving him any special treatment and that he is determined not to ask for it.
' He's obviously a very skilful pilot; he came top of his class of 75 in 707 Training Squadron and there's a sequence when you see him land a helicopter on the top of Snowdon that would be a test of any pilot's skills.
' We followed him for over a year during which he graduated into a qualified helicopter pilot, theoretically ready for a front-line posting. It took us from Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey to Miami Beach and northern Canada.'

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.
