: The Shogun Inheritance

Japan and the Legacy of the Samurai The last of seven films
Narrated by Julian Pettifer Pageboy to the Gods
A recent survey revealed that nearly 80 per cent of Japanese are devout Buddhists, but almost the same number profess to be followers of Shinto. People hedge their bets by following both religions ana Keep in their homes two altars - one for Shinto gods, the ' Kami and the other for the family dead. In seeking an understanding of Japan today and of the ' Japanese spirit ', it seems one always comes back to Shinto. In the words of anthropologist Fosco Maraini , ' The Japanese enjoy the mere fact of living to the hilt. They work, like a myriad of buzzing bees, with a dedication that can only stem from an undivided and terribly healthy soul ... The world is good; work is good; fruits are good; and even war is good, provided you win it. All this is entirely consonant with the Spirit of Shinto.'

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.
