Tonight from BBC Scotland Current Account on A Place of Strangers
In its Gaelic origin, Dunoon means a place of strangers. The latest ! influx to the town on the lovely Holy Loch came in 1961 from the American fleet of missile submarines. They were met with waves of protest.
Sixteen years later the Clyde coast town has learned to live with Polaris and Poseidon and the 2,000 US servicemen and their families.
But they've had to adapt in some surprising ways.

: The Traditional World of Islam

A series of six films, showing various aspects of traditional Islamic civilisation, and made as part of last year's World of Islam Festival. 4: The Pattern of Beauty
The film concentrates on the arts of architecture and abstract decoration, and shows how, from an Islamic point of view, these are approached and understood. Other sequences show the arts of calligraphy and painting, and the film ends with the art of three great cultures which flourished at the same moment three centuries ago: Saffavid Iran, Ottoman Turkey, and Mughal India all produced magnificent buildings which, in widely different ways, are profoundly Islamic.

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.
