: Arena

Berthold Lubetkin
Born in Georgia in 1901, Berthold Lubetkin is one of the most outstanding and influential architects in Britain. His life has spanned the Russian Revolution and two World Wars. Finally, in 1982 he was awarded the highest honour the RIBA can grant - the Royal Gold Medal, in belated recognition of his achievements. Best known for the abstract elegance of the Penguin Pool at London Zoo, he remains an isolated figure constantly fighting bureaucracy and indifference; he has remained an unapologetic champion of the ideals of modernism while fiercely attacking many of its most celebrated exponents. In tonight's Arena Richard Rogers ,
Peter Palumbo , Lord Zuckerman and others assess the unique influence that Lubetkin has had on generations of architects.

: Dustin Hoffman in Midnight Cowboy

D also starring
Jon Voight
Brenda Vaccaro.
Joe Buck is as naive as he is blue-eyed and handsome. When he arrives in a garish New
York he is sure that he'll find sex, adventure and money. What the 'cowboy' finds is just one friend - Ratso Rizzo. This odd couple strike up one of the most unusual partnerships in screen history. John Schlesinger 's modern classic is intermittently sad, funny, brutal and always gripping, and features a memorable performance from Hoffman, hot favourite for an Oscar with his role in this year's Rain Man.

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
