: Madhur Jaffrey's Far Eastern Cookery: Japan

Sixth of eight programmes.
Subtle textures, beautiful presentation and delicate flavourings make the cuisine of Japan a wonderful contrast to many of the other cuisines of the Far East.
Madhur Jaffrey visits Keiko and Akiro Okamoto in the hills above Kyoto, and picks wild mountain vegetables for a traditional autumn noodle casserole. In Kyoto itself she visits an old Japanese travellers' inn, famous for its tranquil atmosphere and exquisite food. Also, she investigates more modern travellers' fare. Madhur shows how to make yakitori or chicken bits on a skewer as well as a delicious Japanese salad, green beans with sesame dressing.

: Sword and Spirit

A six-part documentary series revealing the cutting edge of Christianity. 4: China: Through the Fiery Furnace
During the Cultural Revolution China's six million Christians were persecuted, their churches destroyed. Now, in a new climate of religious freedom, churches are re-opening at a rate of one a week. But what kind of Christianity is it that can coexist with a communist regime? To find out, Charles Elliott meets survivors of the cruel past as well as new, young converts. And he hears the dilemma of Chinese Catholics, still torn between loyalty to Beijing and loyalty to Rome.

: Whatever Happened to Patrick Hamilton?

In this Late Show special,
Hermione Lee uncovers the story of Patrick Hamilton , a well-known and successful author in the 1930s and 40s. His plays Gaslight and Rope are studies of obsession and despair among the underclasses living in the shadow of war. His writing was curtailed by alcoholism and depression, and after his death in 1962 his works were largely forgotten. In the last few years, interest in this lost author has grown, and the programme includes interviews with friends of Hamilton, the critic Michael Holroyd and extracts from his major novels.

Screenplay by G. F. NEWMAN starring with Josette Simon Gary Love and Heathcote Williams
The stories Dunhill comes up with are exciting, crusading and usually alarm his employers. Today he's got a leak about germ warfare, scandal in Ulster and a hot potato for the PM. But suddenly Dunhill himself may be in the news and in a way that no honest journalist would want.

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.
