: In the Country

Portrait of a Country Year
The last of three seasonal films
Gordon Beningfield , whose paintings of the countryside and its wildlife have been a popular feature of this series, looks back over his year as an artist in the country. His home village of Great Gaddesden in Hertfordshire is only half-an-hour up the motorway from London, yet it has retained all the character of a more traditional rural England. The Echoes of Winter
The corn is cut and the countryside turns gold. The shepherd gathers in his flock and the game-keeper sets his pheasants free. With the first snows come the early lambs, and in the woods the guns echo the end of another country year.

: Jethro Tull

' Somewhere inside me is basically a show-off, wanting to get on stage. There's a peculiar romanticism about travelling around and hawking your wares.'
After 11 years and 15 gold or platinum lps, every performance by this highly-successful British rock group is still dominated by the extraordinary figure of Ian Anderson. His music and lyrics are distinctive and personal, with deep folk roots, and his singing and flute playing command total attention. But behind the compelling stage performer is another IAN ANDERSON - quiet, private man, who puts the same energy into imaginative farming ventures in Buckinghamshire and the Isle of Skye. This film shows the many-sided talents of the group, at home, in the recording studio, and on tour in America.

West Indian GARY SOBERS was probably cricket's greatest all-rounder; the flowing grace of his cricket translates well to the golf course GLEN CAMPBELL 'S country and western singing is world-renowned; his golf may not be so smooth as his voice but it is still effective.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
