: Virginia Woolf

A Night's Darkness, A Day's Sail
'To the wakeful, to the hopeful, walking the beach, stirring the pool, come imaginations of the strangest kind; of flesh turned to atoms and driven before the wind.'
(VIRGINIA WOOLF, 1882-1941)
Virginia Woolf is regarded by many as one of the century's greatest English novelists. This film was made 12 years ago, when many who knew her were still alive: the painter Duncan Grant , novelist Elizabeth Bowen and critic Raymond Mortimer. Others who survive and contribute to this celebration of her life and work include Lord David Cecil and her biographer and nephew Quentin Bell. Narrator GAVIN MILLAR

: The World About Us

The Horse from the Gods
An Indian is interrupted at his prayers by a great saddled beast moving slowly towards him out of the rising sun. This is the beginning of a dramatised version of how an American Indian sees his first horse, is terrified by it and then learns to ride it.
It is 1541. Until this date no horse had been seen in North America. Then the Spanish Conquistadores brought them in their search for fabled gold and in doing so revolutionised the life of the Indian, and indeed of the whole continent.

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.
