: England's Nazareth

From Easter onward the small Norfolk village of Little Walsingham is invaded every year by as many as half a million pilgrims.
There has been a shrine here since 1061. Today there are two, and Derek Jacobi tells of the rivalry that has existed between them and of the commercialism that has accompanied the growing popularity of the place the pilgrims call 'England's Nazareth'.
The programme also explores the miracles of healing said to have happened here, including that of an 8-year-old girl critically injured in a road crash, and follows in the footsteps of two families in search of their own personal miracles.

: My Favourite Year

starring
Peter O'Toole
Mark Linn-Baker
New York City 1954, the heyday of live television.
Swashbuckling movie idol Alan Swann is invited to be the star of the popular 'Comedy Cavalcade' show.
But his reputation for booze, women and the good life makes the programme executives fear for what might happen.... They assign Benjy Stone, a junior writer, to look after the notorious star - with calamitous results. This slapstick comedy gives Peter O'Toole one of his most colourful roles of recent years.

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.
