: Open to Question

He is a hero of the left and an ogre of the right. Many see him as a crusader, asserting the right to work and challenging an authoritarian government. Others view him as a destroyer of the very fabric of parliamentary democracy, a man to be feared and above all defeated.
In this programme the man at the centre of one of the most protracted and bitterly fought coal strikes in history, Arthur Scargill, leader of the miners' union, is Open to Question.
Presented by Hilary O'Neill and Michael MacFarlane.

: Italians

Ten portraits of Italy today 9: The Sister of Spoleto
Sister Genoveffa Cali has been a nun for 35 years. Her father fought her decision, but she wouldn't be stopped. Becoming a nun was 'like boarding a train to Wonderland'. She has worked with Italian immigrants in Michigan and in a home for the mentally handicapped in Trevi. She acts as a social worker and psychotherapist. And she is now a novice mistress in a small convent outside Spoleto with six young girls in her charge. It's hard for her to be strict. As a novice 'I was always the one to break the rules' she laughs.
Sister Genoveffa Cali hasn't always found the life easy. But today she is serene - and as irrepressible as ever. 'My adventure isn't over yet.'

: Arena: The Theatre of Dario Fo

Dario Fo is unique in world theatre. Playwright, actor, clown, teacher and philosopher, he is an international celebrity and his latest farce - Trumpets and Raspberries has joined the record-breaking Accidental Death of an Anarchist as a West End success.
Arena filmed Dario Fo against the background of medieval Italy, working with students in Umbria, at home in Milan and against the colourful backdrop of the Venice Carnival, where he performed his triumphant one-man comic show, Mistero Buffo.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
