: Jerusalem

A Personal History
Written and presented by Michael Frayn
Set in the middle of an inhospitable desert and perched 3,000 feet in the air,
Jerusalem is a city with only one means of support. It has no minerals no agriculture, no real trade - just one invisible resource - holiness. For 3,000 years it has been the holiest city in the world - the only city holy to three different religions.
Playwright and journalist Michael Frayn visited
Jerusalem during the high season of holiness when
Passover tourists and Easter pilgrims arrive in search of the source of their faith, to trace the violent history of this strangest of all holy places.

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.
