Weather followed by Is There Something after Death?
A personal enquiry in six parts by Ean Begg , a Jungian analyst and psychotherapist 5: Letting Go
We have few formal initiations into the meaning of life and death. The dying and bereaved often feel alone and guilty in their struggle to overcome their grief.
C. G. Jung , the founder of modern depth psychology, believed that death is a goal to strive towards, and that it is better to acknowledge that goal than shrink from it.
The founders of the Hospice Movement, who have strong religious convictions, are enabling people to cope with death more creatively. How can we prepare for death and what may happen afterwards?
Producer ANGELA TiLBY
Director SIMON HAMMOND

: Top Gear

The Turin Motor Show is the showcase of the Italian motor industry - a chance to show off the latest design concepts and, increasingly, the latest in high tech.
But does the Italian view of style and innovation still lead the world? And has the Italian industry - dominated by the Fiat Group - had too easy a time in its home market for too long? William Woollard and Sue Baker report from the show. Chris Goffey road-tests two new cars - the Fiat Tipo, which its makers hope will supplant the Volkswagen
Golf as Europe's best-selling car, and the executive-class Alfa 164. With Lancia set to dominate the World Rally scene for a second year, Tony Mason looks at their latest contender - the Integrale. Producer JON BENTLEY

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about our lives - now.
Women in Black
Every day, over 500 women in Britain are widowed.
Tonight's film portrays three at different stages of recovery. Iris Hughes is an attractive young woman with two teenage children, widowed only seven months ago. She now runs her husband's mini-cab company, smiling and joking with the drivers.
But inside, her grief is still raw.
Maureen Jones , 41, was widowed five years ago. The day Angelo died, Maureen's social life in her small South Wales community ended.
But she's become a district nurse - and many of the patients she visits in the valley are widows too.... Daphne Hamilton-Fairley had been married for 22 years when her husband Gordon was killed, the innocent victim of an IRA bomb.
That was 12 years ago.
Daphne, an elegant woman in her 50s, has managed to rebuild her life.
Now she runs a successful school for dyslexic children. Three women from different walks of life, talking movingly on a common theme - learning to live without him. Photography

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.
