: In the Making

A celebratory series of 13 programmes for Jubilee Year about craftsmen in Britain. 12: Bells
' Over the centuries there have been many hundreds of bell foundries in this country but today there are only two. I suppose in the entire world there are only something like six or seven bell foundries, and those are mostly in and around Europe.'
THE WHITECHAPEL BELL FOUNDRY has made some of the most famous bells in the world, including The Liberty Bell of America and Big Ben of London. Tonight's film shows the process of making a bell from moulding to casting and tuning, and features several of the craftsmen who make up this small firm which has been in existence in the East End of London for over 500 years.

: Arena: Cinema

Presented by Gavin Millar
Mr Universe , the Crazy Horse Girls de Paris, Yum Yum Shaw , superstars with police escorts, topless bathing beauties-the Cannes Film Festival still sometimes seems more like a circus than a trade fair. But for all that, film people find it an indispensable fortnight in their calendar. More buying, selling and setting up of movies takes place in the jostling corridors of the Carlton Hotel in the last two weeks of May than anywhere else the rest of the year. A report on the business and the ballyhoo.

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.
