: James Burke: The Real Thing

This Way Up
Inside your brain is a complex map of your world. But sometimes you don't let it tell you everything it knows. And sometimes you believe the evidence of your own eyes, when you should be letting your ears do the talking.
So how do you know what's real and what isn't? The answer is not as simple as you might think. Tonight, in the second of a series of six programmes, James Burke goes to the circus, climbs Black-pool Tower, and turns upside down in order to discover how you know where you are, and which way is down.

: Rockschool

In rock, tuning is mainly a question of getting the guitar, bass and drums to sound and feel right. As long as the instruments in a band seem to fit together, then it doesn't matter if they're perfectly tuned. This week Deirdre Cartwright (guitar), Geoff Nicholls (drums) and Henry Thomas (bass) look at string types and gauges, drum sticks and drum heads, and the importance these all have in your own playing and the overall sound of your band.

: Chronicle

Jerash - Pompeii of the East Introduced by Erik de Mauny
Jerash, the most spectacular Roman city in the East, lies high in the hills of Gilead in Jordan. Destroyed by earthquakes in the eighth century it has remained forgotten for many centuries.
Among the city's most celebrated features are its great central colonnaded street which runs for over half a mile, its unique Oval Piazza and its theatres, temples and 15 churches. A five-year plan is already under way to uncover more of the city and restore it to its former glory. Every day teams of international architects and archaeologists reveal some new clues to the past.

: Aristocrats

with Robert Lacey
The third of six films on the noble families of Europe.
Italy: The Marquis of Frescobaldi Warriors, merchants, bankers to the Kings of England, tax collectors for the Pope, musicians, scholars and poets, the Frescobaldi family have lived in palazzos on the same Florentine site for over 800 years.
In a country where aristocracy no longer officially exists, the Marquis of Frescobaldi remains the head of one of Florence's oldest titled families. The Frescobaldi own eight Tuscan estates and produce some of the best chianti wine. And they manage to combine the elegant style of the aristocrat with a thoroughly business-like approach to the noble art of survival.

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.
