: Another Six English Towns

with Alec Clifton-Taylor The first of a new series of programmes in which
Alec Clifton-Taylor , with his unrivalled enthusiasm for buildings, looks at six of England's historic towns. 1: Cirencester
Cirencester, the capital of the Cotswolds, is built on the site of the Roman town of Corinium. Its Parish Church has the highest tower in Gloucestershire and its stone houses with their distinctive array of gables once belonged to prosperous wool merchants in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today there is a mixture of architectural styles that, according to Clifton-Taylor, 'blend harmoniously and in the market place the buildings
. burst forth into a chorus of painted stucco'. A 42-foot high yew hedge masks the town's one real mansion, Cirencester House; the 10,000-acre park is one of the largest of its kind in England and one of the last. Music composed by JIM PARKER Photography COLIN WALDECK Film editor SUSAN SPIVEY
Executive producer BRUCE NORMAN Producer JANE COLES
Book, £12.95, to be published on 25 October, will be available from booksellers

: * Grand Prix

The 1984 Formula One World Championship Italian Grand Prix
It takes a special day to get the Italians to stop talking about football and Mama's pasta. Today is that sort of day on the famed Monza track. The fanatical Italian crowd want a Ferrari to win but in Holland they were two laps behind the all-conquering McLarens. Even home advantage won't outweigh that sizeable difference, and if an Italian does win it will be by courtesy of a McLaren breakdown.

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.
