: Open Space: Officers No More

'Bruised for life' is how one young naval officer describes his short term of service. In 1980 he was one of the first intake of a trial three-and-a-half year commission. By the end of that period only three of the original 21 are still in the Royal Navy. What makes a young man want to train as a naval officer? Why did so many leave? Three who stayed the course, but left in October, confront these questions in a voyage of rediscovery on the River Dart - from Dartmouth, where it all started, until they could go no further.

: I Sing to You Strangers

So wrote Dylan Thomas in the Prologue to his Collected Poems.
In this film, introduced by Rene Cutforth, some who were not strangers - friends, relatives and fellow-broadcasters, who in their various ways loved the poet - give an account of the person he really was. The portrait that emerges, enriched by Thomas's own voice in poetry and prose, is different from the generally accepted picture of the inspired and irresponsible drunkard who somehow received a commemorative stone in Westminster Abbey.

The second of eight programmes looking behind the doors of Westminster and Parliament.
Narrated by Anthony Quayle Those Five Hundred Kings
The root of our Parliamentary system dates from the moment the boy King Edward VI gave his chapel of St Stephen at Westminster to the Commons for their regular meeting place in 1547. Under a permanent roof a wilful Parliament developed, whose members King James I described as ' those five hundred kings '.
This week the story continues of one of the most extraordinary buildings in the world.

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.
