: One Pair of Eyes

A series of films in which people can let off steam, grind their axe or simply have a chuckle. Beryl Cook
A highly successful yet totally untrained artist, she only started painting in her late 30s. Her subjects are mostly women, usually middle-aged and nearly always enjoying themselves. Plymouth, where she lives with her car-salesman husband, provides the setting for many of her pictures - the Hoe where she walks the dogs, the shops and market, and above all the pubs.

: Gardeners' World

from
Halam, Nottinghamshire
Presented by Geoff Hamilton and Clay Jones
Eva Ninnis 's love of the open countryside is reflected in the informal design of her garden - and while other gardens are fading from their best at this time of the year, the long double-herbaceous border is awash with colour from plants chosen for their blooms, berries, hips and foliage effects. 'In my garden foliage plants are the backbone of all seasons,' says Eva, and the plants she's chosen reflect the colour of the changing seasons. Production assistant

The war is over. Both of Oedipus' sons have been killed in the battle and Creon now rules supreme in Thebes, determined to establish law and order to save the state from further carnage. As a warning to any future rebel he decrees that the body of Polynices, who attacked the city, shall remain unburied, on pain of death for anyone who transgresses. Antigone, the dead man's sister, decides to defy the decree.

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.
