: Vikings!

Ten films in which Magnus Magnusson explores the Viking world. 5 : England at Bay
' All they wanted was a nice warm welcome and a few beers in Weymouth, but they were insulted, so fists began to fly.'
That is Magnus Magnusson 's slightly tongue-in-cheek interpretation of events on the Dorset coast around AD 790, when England's first recorded Viking visitors arrived unannounced and slew the king's representative for daring to ask them their business!
Today's episode of Vikings! looks at the Viking kingdom of York, and at the beleaguered kingdom of Wessex where it was left to a young Saxon king to stem the onslaught of the ' Viking host'-Alfred the Great. with DENNIS EDWARDS

The professional and lay members of the health authority have to find a solution which marries medical excellence and the community's wishes-and all within a reduced budget.

Kingstone Lisle, Oxfordshire
The architect of Kingstone Lisle broke all the rules to produce a most magnificent hall with a flying staircase and classical figures, yet still managed to retain an intimate atmosphere.
In this unique setting Arthur Negus shares his love of furniture, silver and glass with his friend and colleague, Robin Butler. Still very much a home, Kingstone Lisle contains beautiful 17th- and 18th-century cut glass, as well as a collection of miniature furniture and one or two surprises!

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.
