: Sixty Glorious Years

Presented by Fred Housego. Last year the London Taxidrivers' Fund for
Underprivileged Children celebrated its 60th anniversary by taking 300 children on a very special outing. Driving through
London, they dropped in on the Lord Mayor, had lunch at Wellington Barracks and tea at the Zoo. And, oh yes, on the way they called in to see the Queen at Buckingham
Palace. It was a day they will never forget.

: Paradise of Martyrs

It is ten years since the revolution in Iran. This unique film, by the first independent crew to be granted wide-ranging access within the Islamic republic, was made over eight weeks under government scrutiny. Paradise of Martyrs is a fascinating account of Islamic fundamentalism, where every citizen is ready to lay down his life for God and to fight to the death anyone who threatens his faith. Young soldiers wounded in the Iran-Iraq war are philosophical about their debilitating injuries:
'whatever God wants will happen'. Death itself is not feared for it is 'an honour to be martyred'. The film offers a revealing look at the law of retaliation in the case of Mustafa, the butcher, on trial for murder. According to the law, the victim's family has the right to demand his death. Anyone who goes against
Islam must be prepared to die. In the words of one young woman: 'If a man's heart is black and he is beyond hope, then yes, we will kill him'. Producer BOB PLASTO
An IMAGO production in association with JOURNEYMAN

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.
