: Wales! Wales?

The last of six films with Dai Smith We're Still Here
Almost four-and-a-half centuries ago, Wales was abolished. That, anyway, was the intention of Henry VIII 's Act of Union, but Wales has continued to assert its existence despite it. During the last 25 years in particular, new institutions and ideas have added strength to the idea of Wales as a place that's different, with special problems and answers. But the public arguments may have masked the real and dramatic changes that have taken place.

: One Pair of Eyes

Laurie Taylor - Country Blues
A confirmed nature-hater since childhood, Laurie Taylor sets out from his weekend cottage in Battersea to try to find his 'true self in the country.
Armed with Ordnance Survey and Collected Wordsworth he is quickly lost - 'a townie in the wheatfield'and soon falls foul of the giant machines which have been unleashed on the new factory farms of England. Retiring to the Lake District he peers at packed beauty spots, walks the ramblers' M4, and follows the crowds to a Visitors' Centre, where one can learn about the countryside without the bother of actually going there.
Baffled, he retreats to the peace and order of Hyde Park. 'You don't have to feel anything about a city park. No one asks you - "how was the park?"

: All the World's a Stage

A series of 13 programmes Written and presented by Ronald Harwood
10: The Master Builders
Modern drama is born. Against the atmosphere of claustrophobia and narrow-mindedness of 19th-century Norway, Henrik Ibsen ignites the next great explosion of theatrical activity. Peer Gynt, A Doll's House, Hedda Gabler and The Master Builder brought a new view of society and influenced such playwrights as Strindberg and Bernard Shaw. But theatricality returned - Wilton's Music-Hall in London becomes for this programme a seedy 1920s Berlin theatre club for Wedekind's entertainment Lulu. Those taking part include:
Wendy Hiller , Antony Sher Diana Quick , Charles Gray
Colin Blakely , Penelope Wilton
Daniel Massey and Michael Meyer
Film editor SUSAN SPIVEY
Executive producer RICHARD CAWSTON Producer HARRY HASTINGS

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.
