: The Traditional World of Islam

A series of six films
5: Knowledge of the World
' Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave' is a famous injunction of Muhammed.
The film shows the large and beautiful colleges which led to the establishment of what are probably the oldest universities in the world. Two other important institutions also passed from Islam to Europe: the observatory and the hospital. Islam's contribution to medicine was particularly great, and today an interesting revival of traditional Islamic medicine is taking place in Pakistan.

: The Skin Game

A play by john GALSWORTHY with Threatened with the encirclement of his land by more and more of Hornblower's factories, Hillcrist, the local squire, preserves an aristocratic calm. But his wife reacts differently, and her retaliation almost ends in tragedy.
More than half a century after its first appearance The Skin Game remains an absorbing, gripping drama which, despite the occasional hint of melodrama, still works wonderfully well today ...

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.
