: The Italian Film: The White Sheik

(Lo Sceicco Bianco) starring
Brunella Bovo Alberto Sordi
For his first film as a solo director,
Federico Fellini found inspiration in the popular comic-strip story magazines with their wildly improbable tales of romance and derring-do.
Fellini knew this world well - he had worked as an artist on the very magazines he satirises so brilliantly in The White Sheik.
Arriving in Rome on her honeymoon, Wanda promptly slips away to find her idol, the dashing hero of a melodramatic photostrip.
While her hapless husband is desperately keeping up appearances, Wanda is discovering the real man behind the glamorous image of the White Sheik.
Directed by FEDERICO FELLINI (An Italian film with English subtitles. Black and white. First showing on British television)

Fantastic Symphony is one of the most extraordinary and original compositions ever written.

: The Light of Experience

5: Monsignor Bruce Kent
'If anyone had asked me in the early days, I'm sure I would have said CND was a bunch of Communists.....'
When Bruce Kent first became a priest, his concerns were spiritual and pastoral, but a trip to Biafra in the middle of the Nigerian civil war opened his eyes to the political implications of the Gospel. What he saw made him a pacifist and set him on the path which led to his becoming General Secretary of the very organisation he had scorned.
For the first time he talks personally about the priesthood - why he joined, why he remains and how his concept of priesthood has changed.

: Ronnie Scott's Club

The First 25 Years
A quarter of a century ago this week Ronnie Scott launched what is still today London's only regular late night jazz venue. Neither he, nor the club's manager Pete King , had a master plan for the long-term future success of the club. 'We just started in a small place in Gerrard Street; it was just a place for us to play - local guys - me in particular! No one else would book us!'
In the company of John Junkin Ronnie looks back over the years and recalls anecdotes involving some of the personalities who have become legends in the club's unique reputation. Also included, from BBC archives, are performances at the club from Oscar Peterson , Sonny RoUins Sarah Vaughan , Dizzy Gillespie Kenny Clarke -

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.
