A Place for God on Earth
It still stands, solitary, stark and beautiful in the foothills of the Guadarrama mountains 40 minutes up the motorway from Madrid. ' The King of Spayne's Hows 'was what they called it - with sinister intent - in the England of Queen Elizabeth I... , King Philip of Spain conceived the idea of it and supervised its construction down to the smallest detail. It was his obsession. It was to be a palace, a monastery, a burial place for kings and queens, a treasure-house of paintings, sculptures, manuscripts and books, and in its very centre it was to have a mighty basilica church.
It was here that Philip II, who owned more than half the known world of his time, ruled his kingdom by correspondence from a small desk. It was here that he received news of the great victory of Lepanto and where later he was to plan the invasion and conquest of England -the Armada. This was where El Greco , one of the most magnificent of all painters, suffered his greatest failure. It was where some of the most enigmatic of the strange paintings of Hieronymus Bosch were gathered. It was where the scandalous Christ of Cellini was brought.
Few buildings in the world can tell us more about their founder than this one.
Dr Nicholas Baum , Sir Hugh Casson and Prof Hugh Trevor -Roper take you round the building and tell you its story.

: In Deepest Britain

Islands of the Grey Wind
In Orkney, they say, only the climate is rough: the landscape is gentle, the islands ' like sleeping whales'.
Today, three naturalists, Orcadian Sheila Spence , and incomers David Lea and John Crothers , bring us some of the sights and sounds of Orkney in winter-wide moor-lands and peaceful lochs, soft-eyed seal pups waiting to be fed and the wild melancholy cry of whooper swans.

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.
