: In the Country

Creative Countryside
This summer Bernard Price made a personal journey through England to explore the ways its varied landscape has inspired so many of our best-loved artists and musicians. Each corner of our countryside has spawned creative artists who have made it their own.
For many people Ashdown Forest in Sussex is known as ' Pooh Country', so vivid are the images of A. A. Milne 's books and Ernest Shepherd's illustrations. BERNARD PRICE plays Pooh sticks under the real Pooh Bridge and guides us further off the beaten track to discover other, less familiar artists whose work celebrates the diversity of the English countryside.

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
