: BC: The Archaeology of the Bible Lands

A series of 12 programmes Written and presented by Magnus Magnusson
12 : The End of the Old
The familiar Old Testament story ends with the return of the Jews from Babylon - to a new Jerusalem and a new Temple. The last of the ' BC ' series takes the story of the Jews and Judaism further, to the threshold of the Christian era. During Greek and Roman times, Classical cultures vied with Jewish orthodoxy; and the Dead Sea scrolls reveal just how far some Jewish sects had retreated from the cosmopolitan world of Roman client-kings like Herod.
The excavation of Herod's many palaces and fortresses has provid-
AD 70: THE ROMANS DESTROY THE
JERUSALEM TEMPLE ed a vivid picture of his life and times; but 70 years after his death, the first Jewish Revolt against the Romans was crushed by the final destruction of the Jerusalem
Temple and the ending of Jewish resistance at Masada.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
