: Civilisation: 11: The Worship of Nature

A personal view by Kenneth Clark

'For almost 1,000 years the chief creative force in Western civilisation was Christianity. Then, in about the year 1730, it suddenly declined - in intellectual society practically disappeared. Of course it left a vacuum. People couldn't get on without a belief in something outside themselves, and during the next 100 years they concocted a new belief which, however irrational it may seem to us, has added a good deal to our civilisation - a belief in the divinity of nature.' Lord Clark's examination of this new force takes him to Tintern Abbey and the Lake District of Wordsworth, to the Swiss Alps and the ideas of Rousseau, and to the landscapes of Turner and Constable.
Poems of William Collins, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth spoken by C. Day Lewis.

: Gardeners' World

from Hidcote with Geoff Hamilton and Roy Lancaster
Designed by Major Lawrence Johnston and presented to the National Trust in 1948, the gardens of Hidcote Manor are an outstanding example of a series of cottage gardens which in the words of Vita Sackville-West 'appeal alike to the advanced gardeners in search of rare or interesting plants and to the lover of beauty content to wander down broad grass walks flanked with colour'.

: Bunuel: Belle de Jour

starring Catherine Deneuve with Jean Sorel, Michel Piccoli
Severine, recently married to a successful surgeon, finds her days boring and empty and her evenings equally unsatisfying. A chance bit of gossip about a girl-friend at first intrigues her and then leads her into a dangerous double-life.
Bunuel's sumptuously filmed picture of the rich wife whose erotic fantasies lead her to work part-time in a brothel won the best picture award at the 1967 Venice Film Festival.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
