: Alec Clifton-Taylor's English Towns

Cirencester, Gloucestershire
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, says Alec 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 Producer JANE COLES (R)

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
