: In the Country

Presented by Angela Rippon The 13th of 16 programmes The Way of the Village
Life in the country appeals to many - but is it just a romantic notion? Modern farming has already changed the face of the countryside, leaving villages that no longer need the farmworkers and craftsmen who were once the backbone of the community. How can their local shops, school and services survive?
Angela Rippon and Bernard Price visit the Cotswold village of Blockley, where the temptation to cash in on tourism has been resisted. But if we are to avoid preserving the countryside as a living museum, we have to find the means to revitalise our villages. In a converted silk mill, Angela discusses some of the solutions with the people of Blockley.

: Juan Carlos - King of Spain

When Juan Carlos succeeded General Franco five years ago, many wondered how long he would last. It seemed an impossible task - to heal the scars of the Civil War, keep the peace between Left and Right, bring about political change and restore the Spanish monarchy. Today JUAN CARLOS is the king who has surprised them all. He has brought Spain from dictatorship to democracy. He is 43 - shrewd, humorous, a sportsman - living with his wife, Queen Sophia, and their three children in simple style just outside Madrid. He is a squash player and skier, Head of State and Commander-in-Chief. In this film profile, he is shown receiving ambassadors in the magnificent Oriente Palace, roughing it on army manoeuvres with his generals and at home with his family.
In a series of interviews with Jack Pizzey , he speaks for the first time of his feelings for General Franco and of the changes he has initiated in Spain.
It is a frank portrait of the King his people call ' the keystone that holds Spain together',

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
