: Who Cares?

A series of six programmes presented by Jonathan Miller
4: How Do You Feel?
'I get to the stage where, if I could have bought a gun, I'd shoot him.... then I'll go into another room and sit and cry for a couple of hours. I don't know what else to do.' Barbara cares for her husband Vincent, who has suffered several strokes.
She's courageous enough to admit to feelings shared by thousands of carers - anger and resentment followed by guilt and self-pity. The irony is that if you're a carer, you're expected to be the strong one, even when life is intolerable. So where do you turn for the emotional support you need?

: Donovan the Diviner

The last programme in the present series.
Donovan Wilkins is a true countryman. As a sideline to his work as a water diviner, Don has been a deer warden for many years. Through caring for fallow deer he has come to understand these beautiful creatures in a quite unique way. For Don has discovered that just as he is a diviner of water, so deer are also diviners, able to respond to earth energy forces and benefit from them.
In this week's programme, Donovan's wife, Margaret, attempts the extraordinary. She searches for the deer's elusive rutting stands, not by dowsing the ground but by dowsing a map.

: Under the Sun

Four Days in Summer 'The Palio is life itself distilled into four days.' 'The Palio is a love - a passion. But unlike other human passions which can be exhausted, the Palio is only exhausted by death.' The Palio of Siena, in Tuscany, is the most dangerous horse race in the world. The competition, which has been held for nearly 1,000 years, is restricted to 17 contradas or districts of Siena. To the Sienese the contrada is everything. Each one is a closed community which has the passionate loyalty of all its members who are united by ancient rivalries with the other districts.
These rivalries come to a head during the four days of the Palio. The race is the culmination of the Sienese year. Winning is everything, and each district spends hundreds of millions of lira in pursuit of victory. This film goes behind the scenes to show the lives of two enemy districts as they try to make their dream come true.

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.
