: Pick of The Philpott File

This was the first of a series of three programmes about the beef business.
Trevor Philpott reports on The Perfect Beast inere is no business more full of jronic contradiction than the raismg of cattle. It is at once the most glamorous and the most horrific of all the forms of farming. The cowboy is a folk-hero from Stockholm to Tokyo. The slaughterman is a figure of the shadows, with a social standing about equal to that of the public executioner. The Perfect Beast is about the modern cattleman, in Britain and in the Big Country of the USA. Some deal in a few dozen prize animals, some in hundreds of thousands. No other industry or agricultural enterprise is so wrapped m romance as the cattle business.

: Inside Story

A series of nine documentary films on topical issues.
7: Traitors to Hitler
A unique film on the 35th anniversary of Claus von Stauffenberg's attempt to kill Hitter.
The bomb plot to blow Adolf Hitler to pieces as he studied his campaigns in the map-room of the Wolf's Lair on 20 July 1944 failed. The conspirators were rounded up, put on trial, and hanged.
To savour his revenge at leisure, Hitler ordered the trials and death-throes of his enemies to be filmed. Four hours of Hitler's film has finally been tracked down. From it emerges a unique and bizarre parody of justice, as the traitors to the Third Reich are hounded to their death-slow-hanging on piano wire. Hitler's avenging Prosecutor is Roland Freisler ; a perverted star in a sadistic screen role that he knew would please the Führer, as he watched these pictures in his cinema in the Wolf's Lair.
Written and directed by REX BLOOMSTEIN

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.
