: The Levin Interviews

' Twelve years ago I was really a bad guy in this society, an acid head thrown out of Harvard and all that. Now I'm a good guy in the society. Maybe I'll be a bad guy someday. It's just the flow, just the dance.'
Ram Dass, formerly Dr Richard Alpert of the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, talks to Bernard Levin about his search for enlightenment in the last of this series of eight conversations. The search took him to India, where he found a Guru. Now back in America, he himself is regarded by many as a Guru of alternative ways of living.

Cast in order of appearance
Narrator CHRISTOPHER PLUMMER
Martha Graham 's dance drama is the first full-length classic in modern dance history. It is an intensely personal reworking of AESCHYLUS'S trilogy, the Oresteia, seen through the mind of Clytemnestra. The action takes place in the Underworld, shortly after Clytemnestra's death at the hands of her son Orestes. She re-lives the tragic events of the Trojan War, the sacrifice of her daughter Iphigenia, and the murders of her husband Agamemnon, and her lover Aegisthus. By understanding her past, she hopes that the gods will judge her kindly.

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.
