: The Howard Inheritance

The story of the Dukes of Norfolk. Arundel Castle in Sussex is the seat of the only English dukedom to survive since the Middle Ages. Five hundred years after King Richard III created Sir John Howard Duke of Norfolk and Earl Marshal of England, his descendants still hold sway at the head of the British peerage.
Miles, 17th Duke of Norfolk, looks back over the turbulent and often tragic history of Britain's premier Roman Catholic family. Five of his ancestors ended their days on the block; four times the family lost its titles and possessions - but somehow always managed to win them back again.
Andrew Harvey tells the story of a family which has produced soldiers, scholars and politicians; two Queens of England, two Cardinals and two drunkards; a senior Steward of the Jockey Club ... and a saint.

: All the World's a Stage

A series of 13 programmes which tell the story of the theatre from its earliest beginnings to the present day. Written and presented by Ronald Harwood
12: Razzmatazz and Realism
The great American musical. In 1943 the curtain went up on Oklahoma and revealed, not dancing girls, just a lone woman in a rocking-chair. It was one of the great turning-points in theatrical history.
Show business, minstrels, vaudeville, song and dance, even the avant-garde and the struggling, serious American theatre, have all combined to make one of the most exciting experiences on the modern stage.
The programme features extracts from Oklahoma, a special evocation of A Chorus Line in the dance studios of New York, and readings from Death of a Salesman and The Glass Menagerie. Those taking part include: Ethel Merman Eubie Blake
Kim Hunter , Eli Wallach Agnes de Mille
Stephen Sondheim
Jerome Robbins , Hal Prince
Arthur Miller , Alan Jay Lerner and Joseph Papp

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.
