: In the Country

Heavy Horse Power
At the turn of the century, the heavy horse reigned supreme; it was the power both on the land and in the city.
With the gloomy predictions that oil is running out, is there a practical future in a real revival for something like the heavy horse that is self-replacing, that can be fuelled off the land and has a high scrap value at the end of its working life?
To discuss the past, present and future of horse power, Angela is joined in the studio by Lee Weatherley , a chronicler of the history of the heavy horse; Joe Henson , who was a founder member of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust and has recently set up a centre for instruction in the handling and working of heavy horses; and Bernard Price , a country historian who enjoys looking back on the life-styles of people of bygone days.

: Edward Albee

The Playwright Versus the Theatre 'For better or worse, New York City is the theatrical capital of the USA, and what is done in the large Broadway theatres is considered the standard by which the theatre as an art form should be judged in this country. What can one do in a society in which commercial success is equated with excellence? '
Author of 19 plays, director, pro ducer, art collector, Edward Albee talks in New York to Peter Adam. Albee was hailed in the 1950s as Broadway's most promising talent. In the 60s he became internationally famous with Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Now a favourite subject for American drama studies, Albee continues to write, battling against the apathy of audiences and an often hostile and Philistine press.
This film follows him through a busy week, which includes a political demonstration, a university lecture, a visit to the doyenne of American sculptors, Louise Nevel son, and the running of the artists' foundation he set up from the profits of his plays. There are also production meetings for his latest play and rehearsals for a series, Albee directs Albee.

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.
