Dr Zaki Badawi
Chairman of the Imams and Mosques Council
The Muslim community has probably attracted more publicity than any other in the past few years - yet Muslims feel there is still a great deal of misunderstanding about both their beliefs and their view of society. In the second programme in which leading opinion-makers look to the future, Vivian White talks to Dr Zaki Badawi , a leading moderate, about his view of the multicultural Britain of the 90s.

: Public Eye

Each week Public Eye examines issues and stories at the heart of life in Britain. Its brief is wide, ranging from health and environment themes to media, arts and sport; from matters of life and death to less frenetic areas of leisure and culture. Drawing on the expertise of the reporters and correspondents in the BBC's Social Affairs
Unit, each edition analyses the facts and questions the opinions at the core of the individual issue to provide a comprehensive analysis.

: First Time Planting

In the last programme in the series, it's the turn of the dry, sunny, south-facing border, where you can really go to town and create a riot of colour. It's also time to think of winter and spring colour, using bulbs. If you plant these correctly, you can be assured of many years of colourful blooms. By mid-summer, the south-facing borders of Beth Chatto and Rosemary Verey are at their best.

Roberto Rossellini
The great Italian film director, who died in 1977, was the founder of 'neo-realism'.
Following the international success of his films dealing with the Second World War -
Rome, Open City and Paisa - he turned in the 50s to psychological drama. His affair and subsequent marriage to Ingrid Bergman created a major scandal.
Eventually he abandoned the cinema for a series of documentaries on historical figures as part of a great mission to educate the world.
Bearing witness to his genius will be his daughter Isabella, son Gil, directors the Taviani brothers, Carlo Lizzani and Lindsay Anderson. There is also rare footage of Rossellini. Director DAVID THOMPSON

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.
