Julian Bream
A Life in the Country
Far removed from his cockney childhood during the blitz in Battersea, Julian Bream now lives in an 18th-century farmhouse, in one of the most beautiful parts of England - the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset. But his home in the country is in no way an escapist retreat - it has become the centre of his working life. Here, he not only supervises the garden and organises cricket matches, but rehearses his Consort, studies new works and makes recordings.
In this film he plays both the lute and the guitar and with friends and colleagues like John Williams , Robert Tear and Hans Werner Henze performs music ranging from Bach to Rodrigo, from Dowland to Django Reinhardt. Commentary spoken by MICHAEL ALDRIDUE
Film editor Howard BILLINGHAM Written and produced by HERBERT CHAPPEII.

: A Sense of Justice: Sacco and Vanzetti

A film starring Gian Maria Volonle Riccardo Cucciolla , Cyril Cusack Geoffrey Keen , Milo O'Shea
' The most atrocious crime committed by human justice in this century' was how Franklin D. Roosevelt described the case of Sacco and Vanzetti. Tonight's film, a British premiere and the first of six with a sense of justice, reconstructs the famous - or infamous - trial, using some of the actual speeches, including the simple but moving final statements of the men in the dock.
On 5 May 1920, two Italian immigrants, a shoemaker and a fish peddler, were arrested by the police for robbery with murder. They had alibis, and witnesses, but they were also self-confessed anarchists and the case against them ' split America in two '.

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
