: Looking at Documentary: 1: The Realists

A series of five programmes on the work of some of today's television documentary film makers.
Documentary film-makers always start out by looking for reality. James Cameron shows that they cannot help selecting and interpreting the reality they find. This programme illustrates this idea by showing two specially made and contrasting films about the same housing estate.

: The Book Programme

Robert Robinson introduces a weekly look at hardbacks and paperbacks, fact and fiction, best-sellers and remainders.

Heinrich Boll
'I could only start writing when the Nazi time was over. The feeling of being liberated, and I don't mean it ironically, is still in me. I never forget that feeling of being free of that kind of terror.'
Heinrich Boll is Germany's best-selling and often controversial writer. When Boll was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1972 for his novel Group Portrait with Lady, part of the prize money was used to set up a fund to help the families of persecuted writers. It was with Boll that Alexander Solzhenitsyn stayed first when he left the Soviet Union.
His latest novel The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum is about a young innocent girl whose life is ruined by the distortions of the popular press. In this rare interview from an earlier edition of The Book Programme, which was filmed in his home in Cologne, Boll talks about this novel and his other work.

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.
