: Landscapes of England

Eight explorations with Professor W. G. Hoskins
7: Norfolk - Marsh and Sea
On the lonely northern coastline of Norfolk there is an incessant battle between land and sea, in which the fortunes of small communities can change overnight.
PROFESSOR HOSKINS looks at the way generations of people, peasant and lord, have adapted to this soft coastline of marsh and inlet. Ana he shows how a village green was once a port; a ruined church tne site of a once-prosperous village, a grand church that speaks of former glory; and how the daily wandering of ancient cattle can shape a modem road.
There can be few more convivial and enlightening companions to falt in alongside on a journey through the English countryside than

: Circuit Eleven Miami

Law-breakers, law-enforcers, lawyers, the law-in 13 frank documentary films set in Florida, USA. 5: There's No Justice in Law
A courtroom clash of two formidable personalities - Judge Ellen Morphonios and Defence Attorney Al Sepe. Their courtroom collision concerns one Felix Ruiz , a man with a bad record who has been spotted near the scene of a burglary. Sepe appeals to the principle that mere presence at the scene of a crime is not in itself a crime. To no avail. On the very same day the hapless Ruiz appears again before Judge Morphonios as accessory after the fact to the murder of a policeman. Sepe's painstaking search for an unbiased jury is steam-rollered by a Judge determined to complete her quota of cases, and when she comes to pronounce sentence, ' The Time Machine', as Judge Morphonios is affectionately called, lives up to all expectations.

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.
