: Quest for the Unicorn

Chris Denham in conversation with Marika Hanbury-Tenison
Marika and her explorer husband Robin have spent much of their lives travelling to the remoter regions of the world, and in the last 15 years she has collected and evolved enough recipes for more than 30 books.
Today they live on a farm high above Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, in a home and garden created with loving enthusiasm from the rough surrounding moorland. Here Marika hopes that her search for the unicorn will ultimately prove successful. In this setting she talks about her work, the events which have shaped her life, and her present fight against cancer. Director GEORGINA LAMBERT Producer DAVID SPIRES

: Ireland: A Television History

A series of 13 programmes Written and presented by Robert Kee 8: Rising
When the Great War started in 1914, tens of thousands of Irish-men, from all parts of the country, enlisted in the British Army to fight, as they thought, for the rights of small nations like Belgium or even Ireland. Then, on Easter Monday 1916, Dublin rocked with the news that a small group of Irish nationalists had taken over the General Post Office and other strategic sites in the capital and proclaimed an Irish Republic. Five days later, the centre of Dublin was in ruins and the Rising was over. Its leaders were executed.
This is an account by eyewitnesses on both sides, of the Easter Rising, its putting down, and the executions that followed.

Producer: Jeremy Isaacs

(La Route de Corinthe)
Starring Jean Seberg, Maurice Ronet

When a NATO security officer is shot dead in Greece, his wife, Shanny, is framed and convicted of his murder. Given three days to leave the country, she is determined to find her husband's killer first - in spite of active hindrance by NATO officials.

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.
