: Floggin' a Dead Horse

A personal view of village life by Peter Skellern. 'I love villages. I think villages and small intimate communities are the places in which we should live. We know that huge urban sprawls don't work as communities for people. But we should do more with our villages before they all simply become dormitories for the yuppies and rest-homes for the old.'

The story of America's civil rights during the years 1954-65, told in six parts by the men and women who fought the second American revolution.
3: Ain't Scared of Your Jails
(1960-61). By 1960 the black community had perfected the art of non-violent demonstrations.
Protestors simply allowed themselves to be arrested. In the presidential campaign of the same year both candidates supported civil rights with a wary eye on possible repercussions on the white vote in the south. Martin Luther King

: Designs on Europe

Europe is experiencing not just political and economic change, its towns and cities, too, are being transformed. This series of films, each made by a different European country, profiles six very different architects who are contributing to the look of the new Europe.
1: Britain's Michael Hopkins. His hi-tech designs are uncompromisingly modern and have won him a string of awards, but they also seem to go down well with the public. This BBC film examines the Hopkins touch at
Lord's cricket ground and a bottling plant in Suffolk, his plans for
Glyndebourne and the House of Commons as well as the more traditional approach he takes to restoring the ruined farm buildings he bought in Tuscany. Producer Roger Last
Series producer Christopher Martin

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
