: The Gun

A new series of ten programmes presenting the history and development of the firearm. 1; The Great Leveller
Introduced by Christopher Roads
Until the splitting of the atom in this century no single invention has had such a profound effect on 1 history and society as the gun. It changed not only the pattern of warfare and destroyed the old concept of chivalry, but altered every aspect of life, law and the boundaries of empires.
Man has always been attracted by the concept of striking from afar, but with the coming of gun-powder any man who possessed it became equal to the strongest in the land. From mysterious origins in China this astonishing substance changed itself from a source of wonder into real gun-powder with all that that implied and for the gun to emerge as a device sufficiently important to exercise even the mind of Leonardo da Vinci. Narrated by DUNCAN CARSE


Introduced By: Christopher Roads
Editor: Dick Allen
Producer: Ray Sutcliffe

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.
