: The Treasures of The Burrell

Donated to the City of Glasgow nearly 40 years ago, the Burrell Collection is now on show in its magnificent new gallery in Pollok Estate.
In 80 years of continuous collecting Sir William Burrell , a Glasgow ship owner, amassed over 8,000 items covering three continents and almost every period.
In the first of three programmes, John Julius Norwich with Dr Richard Marks , Keeper of the Collection, looks at Burrell's first love -the art of medieval Europe. On display are tapestries, stained glass and sculpture of rare quality, while massive stone arches and the reconstructed rooms of Burrell's Borders home, Hutton Castle, are ingeniously incorporated into the fabric of the building. Architect Barry Gasson talks about his award-winning design.

by MOLLY KEANE. The last of three parts, dramatised by HUGH LEONARD starring
3: Molly Keane's black comedy enters its final phase as the Major's illness provides a battle-ground for Rose and the professional nurse to fight over. Mother observes from a distance. She likes to keep her visits to the sick room short, she has so much to do running the house and hiding the bills. Mr Kiely, the family solicitor, finds it a hard job keeping the creditors from the door. If it wasn't for Aroon, would he bother? But she breathlessly awaits news of Richard.

: Left-Over Wife

Caitlin Thomas in conversation with Vincent Kane
When Dylan Thomas died in New York in 1953 his widow moved to Italy in search of sobriety and peace.
With the help of Alcoholics Anonymous, and after six years of struggle, she gave up alcohol, but peace still evades her.
She now lives in Rome and talks frankly about her turbulent life with the poet, their drinking, their poverty, their fights; and also the difficulties she has faced in the years since his death.

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.
