: More Than Any Other Movement

It's the centenary year in Ireland of one of the most powerful amateur sporting organisations in the world - the Gaelic Athletic Association.
'Loved by its friends who see its games as the spirit of Irish nationalism to be embraced by all. Regarded by its enemies as bigoted, political, poised to swamp Ireland in a culture they find alien and obsolete'. The programme traces the GAA's historical beginnings, reflects its aims and objects and looks at its role in the present day.

: Colin Davis

A private public man, with Lucia Popp , Hermann Prey
Jon Vickers , Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Cleveland Orchestra
Blossom Festival Chorus Symphony Orchestra of Bayerischer Rundfunk
Sir Colin Davis is nearing the end of his 15-year engagement as music director of the Royal Opera House. He has also been principal guest conductor of both the London Symphony Orchestra and the Boston
Symphony Orchestra, and last year became chief conductor of the Bayerischer Rundfunk Orchestra in Munich.
He is a remarkable musician, renowned for his Berlioz,
Wagner, Tippett, and, perhaps above all, Mozart. The film shows him rehearsing The
Magic Flute at Covent Garden as well as conducting
Beethoven in Munich, and Brahms and Tchaikovsky in Cleveland. We are also given a rare glimpse of his life out of the pubic eye - a man who normally shuns publicity and who believes that music should not be exploited for personal glory.

: Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Ellen Burstyn
Kris Kristofferson
Widowed after a rather dull marriage, Alice Hyatt decides that life may pass her by. She is 35, attractive and resilient, has a 12-year-old son and no money. Alice decides to sell up home, head for Monterey and take up her old profession as a singer. Her journey, adventures and romance provide the eventful narrative to this moving and richly comic film.
Ellen Burstyn won an Oscar for her performance and the movie helped establish the reputation of its director who also made Taxi Driver and New York, New York.

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.
