: Women of Our Time

The second of seven programmes Nancy Mitford
A Portrait by Her Sisters
NANCY MITFORD 'S four surviving sisters appear in one programme to describe how close her brilliantly funny novels, The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate, are to life as it was lived in Gloucestershire, London and Paris between the wars and after. There is Pamela who shows us Gloucestershire, where Lord Redesdale brought up his six daughters and one son; Diana, widow of Sir Oswald Mosley , in Paris; Jessica, herself a distinguished author, now in California, a seasoned rebel and left-wing sympathiser; and Deborah, the Duchess of Devonshire, Nancy's youngest sister.

: Living on the Land

The second of seven programmes
Die Jones, the Bard
' I treasure the solitude that farming gives me. It's a sort of tedium in which you needn't think where you're going to throw the next shovelful of muck and can think instead about how you're going to put the next words together.'
Die Jones's serious words have been gravely received and rewarded by many prizes, including the most coveted of all, the Chair at the National Eisteddfod. His lighter lines celebrate joyful events, lampoon the living and commemorate the dead, works often done to order and repaid usually with thanks but on one occasion with a gift of four trout -'which worked out at a trout a line.'

Rocky Circus
June 1981. Gerry Cottle 's circus is sinking into the mud of a wet summer. But even as Cottle is deciding to kill one show, he's dreaming of another. It's an audacious scheme, a revolution, a breakthrough ... It's called Hock Circus. Cottle has seen battered pop star, Gary Glitter , and pronounced him ' a real showman'. The plan is to build the circus around his outrageous mix of high camp and deafening rock. There are only 14 days to complete the marriage. After that, the circus goes on tour, and the audience will decide ...
This is what happened when Gerry Cottle caught his falling star and put him on a motorbike balancing on a tightrope.

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.

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