Introduced by Angela Rippon who, with the help of viewers' letters, puts her guests on the spot when she asks them to enlarge on some of the views of country life that they have voiced so enthusiastically during the series. Tonight's country guests are Phil Drabble , Elizabeth Eyden , Bernard Price and Joe Henson. The country matters they discuss include game, gamekeepers and the whole business of field sports; long-distance paths and the differences of opinion between the ramblers and trail riders; horses and the trade in horse meat; lurchers and hare coursing; and ways of revitalising village life and the economy of the countryside.

: Film International: Belle de Jour

Directed by LUIS BUÑUEL starring Catherine Deneuve with Jean Sorel , Michel Piccoli
The first in an international season of films by six of Europe's most distinguished directors: Bunuel's sumptuously filmed picture of the rich wife whose erotic fantasies lead her to work part-time in a brothel, won the best picture award at the 1967 Venice Film Festival.
Severine, recently married to a successful surgeon, finds her days boring and empty and her evenings equally unsatisfying. A chance bit of gossip about a girl-friend at first intrigues her and then leads her into a dangerous double-life.

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.
