: Eye to Eye

Six documentaries by black film-makers
5: Jacqueline Rudet - Playwright
When you look at yourself as a woman and all the barriers that are around, you just feel "I want to break those barriers, I want to do something new".'
And Jacqueline Rudet did break those barriers two
Years ago when her first three Plays were staged at London's Royal Court Theatre. Now, Jacqueline is doing the rounds of the theatre world seeking a venue for her latest work, an adaptation of Arnold Wesker 's Roots. The inspiration for her plays comes from her Dominican background, the relationship with her family and her own experiences in Britain.
Jacqueline Rudet has been hailed by theatre critics as a playwright with a bright future ahead. Now, aged 25, she seeks to fulfil that early promise.

: Loving Memory

The last of four programmes written and presented by Tony Harrison Cheating the Void
'Time running out for
Europe, and for man ...'
Mankind's memory was given a new resource when film was invented - and a critic who first witnessed people moving on a screen in 1895 said: 'Now death shall cease to be absolute'. But film was only one means used by 19th-century Europeans to reduce the impact of death.
In an age of rising prosperity, the rapidly expanding city populations spent lavishly on their tombs, vying with each other to build ambitious memorials.
Tony Harrison tours the great burial grounds of Europe, from Pere Lachaise in Paris to the Ohlsdorf in Hamburg. In each location he explores the struggle between memory and oblivion: what memory may have gained with every new resource it has to defend constantly against the greater powers of oblivion ...

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.
