: The Shogun Inheritance

Japan and the Legacy of the Samurai
Last in the series
Narrated by Julian Pettifer Pageboy to the Gods
A recent survey revealed that nearly 80 per cent of Japanese are devout
Buddhists, but almost the same number profess to be followers of Shinto. People hedge their bets by following both religions at the same time, and keep in their homes two altars - one for Shinto gods, the 'Kami', and the other for the family dead.
In seeking an understanding of Japan today and of the 'Japanese spirit', it seems one always comes back to Shinto.

And that Reginald Thlabbing was the first person to train his nose to run in a marathon? Fast Forward is a programme for slightly clever people.

Ian Hamilton presents his monthly review of the world of literature. In the 1960s, the black American novelist James Baldwin wrote The
Fire Next Time, and became a 'kind of conduit' expressing the civil rights aspirations of the Negro. Twenty years later he is regarded as a model for young black writers. Caryl Phillips , born in the West Indies, playwright and novelist, talks to Baldwin at his home in the south of France.
Virginia Woolf wrote every day for 35 years. What were the sources of her creativity? In a new literary biography Dr Lyndall Gordon looks not at the public life of Virginia Woolf, but at the private, rather submerged life of the writer. In a pictorial essay, with extracts from novels and diaries read by Anna Massey , Bookmark weaves together some of those key memories and images.

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.
