: For Valour

Written and presented by General Sir John Hackett
The most prized of all British decorations for valour is the Victoria Cross, which is put ahead of all other honours, decorations and awards for bravery, civil or military. But there are many other medals awarded for valour, and in this series GENERAL SIR JOHN HACKETT looks at some of the rewards given to the British serviceman, and at the conditions in which they were won. Although the use of medals as military awards is comparatively recent, they have a long history as an art form to commemorate important people and events.
This first programme traces the history of the medal from the times of the Greeks and Romans to its introduction into Britain under Elizabeth I.

: Ireland: A Television History

A series of 13 programmes Written and presented by Robert Kee
3: Two Nations
In the 18th century Ireland was virtually two nations. Penal laws drove the Catholic majority closer to their church. The ruling Protestant establishment declared its independence of Britain. Then a new breed of nationalists, the United Irishmen, worked to bring the two nations together and plotted, with French help, to set up an independent Irish Republic embracing Protestants and Catholics alike. But the national rebellion degenerated into a bloody sectarian revolt.
By the Union of Britain and Ireland in 1801, the Irish and Westminster parliaments merged - but Catholics were not represented.
The great Catholic patriot, Daniel O'Connell , fought for and achieved the right for Catholics to sit as mps at Westminster. Emancipation won, O'Connell campaigned to repeal the Union with Britain.

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.
