: Architecture at the Crossroads

Ten films about comtemporary architecture 3: Islam: the Search for Identity
Oil has brought unprecedented wealth to the Middle East and, as a consequence, a massive programme of new buildings. This programme looks at Kuwait, Doha and Jeddah where signs of an Islamic contemporary architecture are now emerging. The State Mosque in Kuwait, the University of Qatar and the Suleiman Palace in Saudi
Arabia were all built by Arab architects. The new
Parliament Building by Utzon, the spectacular Haj
Terminal by SOM show that western architecture can give a feeling of place.
Sheikha Hussa (daughter of the Emir of Kuwait), Sheikh Farsi (Mayor of Jeddah),
Egyptian architects Kamal El Kafrawi and Abdel El Wakil are all working towards an Arab identity based on tradition.
Narrator Andrew Sachs
An important landmark in the public discussion of the arts

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.
