: Stantonbury: A Blueprint

The new city of Milton Keynes , in Buckinghamshire, has meant not only new homes but in one case an experimental way of planning the school curriculum. Stantonbury Campus serves one part of the city, and the film looks at the way concepts of ' flexibility ' and ' shared time ' for pupils, have provided them with a wide range of subject choices under a new ' faculty ' structure.

: One Hundred Great Paintings

This week's theme:
The Nude and the Naked Boucher (1703-70)
Girl on a Couch: at the Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Cologne FRANCOIS BOUCHER personified the taste of the French aristocracy before the Revolution. He was First Painter to King Louis XV and favourite artist of the king's official mistress, Madame de Pompadour. He held a near mono-poly for decorating royal residences.
This painting is an example of just how well Boucher could paint when it was not the jaded palates of kings he tried to please, but himself. Written and narrated by EDWIN MULLINS
(Tomorrow: Goya -' The Naked Maja ')

: Fields of Play

The last in a series of five films 5: Playing for Real
As the world becomes more complex, so games, mirroring almost every aspect of our lives proliferate. In New York, one games collector now lives surrounded by 30,000 different board games.
This film travels the border-line between the world of the game and the real world around it - role-playing fantasy games, business games, computer games, war games. We watch a British sports manufacturer revamp the company image around the aggressive dynamism of John McEnroe , analyse the Cuban missile crisis as a poker hand which America won, and Watergate, as the poker hand which Nixon lost.
We see the way games are used to develop frightening new levels of artificial intelligence, look at the connection between computerised video games and the spiralling technology of modern warfare. When the game world ends and the real world begins, will we finally destroy ourselves by destroying the two?

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.
