: In Search of ... Ethelred the Unready

The third in a series of four historical detective stories, written and presented by Michael Wood
Ethelred the Unready has the poorest reputation of any English king. His reign is synonymous with decline and moral failure.
MICHAEL WOOD , in his search for Ethelred, sets out to discover the truth behind the legend. Was Ethelred really unready?
Through one of the most remarkable pieces of English historical writing, the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, a story of disaster, defeat and governmental collapse unfolds.
The Danish raids on England throughout Ethelred's reign led to vast payments of ' Danegeld , protection money, to make the Danes go away. But, despite the hand-over of thousands of silver pennies, the constant ravaging and devastation of England continued. The Anglo-Saxon empire finally collapsed in 1016 and, in an attempt to save what was left, Ethelred's son, Edmund, led an army against the young Viking, Canute. In a field in Essex, a famous place in British history, ' The flower of the English fell' and with them passed what had been the most powerful dynasty Britain had yet seen.

Bare bosoms may have boosted some newspaper sales, but there has been another, more subtle result'of that and other naked displays.
Only a few of the thousands of women who, every year, have breast operations need them for truly medical reasons. For the rest, it is cosmetic surgery,
' I feel I am a boy dressed in dresses,' says Susan, a National Health patient wanting her breasts enlarged. Susan is one of two women who undergo cosmetic surgery of the breast in this film profile. The other, Ruth, has a private operation to lift and reduce her breasts. The film explores the reasons which leads two attractive women to ' correct' what they feel to be ' wrong ' with themselves. It also underlines the risks involved in this sort of surgery,
Michael Dean discusses the implications of the film with a plastic surgeon, a psychiatrist and the two women themselves,

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.
