: David Puttnam and Bill Forsyth

at the National Film Theatre
British film-makers are currently enjoying new esteem. David Putt nam, producer of the award-winning Chariots of Fire, and Bill Forsyth , who recently made his name with the low-budget Gregory's Girl, are two of the people responsible for the improving image of British films. Recently they combined their talents to make Local Hero, but, as they tell Quentin Falk in tonight's Guardian Lecture, the British film industry needs more positive financial backing if it is to produce further triumphs.

: Britain in the Thirties

For King and Country?
In February 1933 the Oxford
Union, the University's student debating society, passed the celebrated motion 'that this house would in no circumstances fight for its King and Country'. The vote caused a storm of protest including a demand from some older members of the university that a second debate be organised to expunge the offending motion from the Union Minute Book. And subseauently certain politicians, including Winston Churchill, have argued that the debate convinced the dictators Hitler and Mussolini that Britain had no stomach for a war against them.
But is there any evidence to support such claims; and what did the young men who dreamed up and debated the motion really think it meant? Some of them now recall the events at Oxford exactly 50 years ago.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
