Exiles
A television play by HUGH WHITEMORE based on Exiles by MICHAEL J. ARLEN starring Alan Badel as Michael Arlen
Martin Shaw as his son, Michael J. Susan Engel as his mother, Atalanta and Ned Sherrin as Noel Coward Michael Arlen , author of The Green Hat , was one of the most successful popular novelists of the 20s. He was also an exile; an Armenian born in Bulgaria, but brought up in England and resident for the last years of his life in the USA. Now, after his death, and the decline in the popularity of his works, his son looks back on his life, and tries to make sense of it.

This month: Achtung Minen !
The work of Ian Hamilton Finlay
William Feaver introduces the latest work of this unique and controversial artist, known since the 60s as our foremost concrete poet. We visit Finláy's remote home in Scotland, where he has constructed his garden as a poem, a submarine noses its way through the bushes, an aircraft-carrier functions as a bird bath, and the sign on his front lawn tells us to beware of mines - Achtung Minen !
Plus Cleveland Brown a truly original naive painter from North London whose subjects include the Spaghetti House Siege and the Queen's Jubilee.
Commercial Break - News and pictures about other events in the arts.

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.
