: Belle and the Glory Boys

She was big, brave and ugly. Many like her took men to their death, but not Belle; she and her boys survived. In the Second World War American bomber crews rarely made it home. The survival rate among these servicemen was only one in five. These deadly odds so appalled film producer David Puttnam that he made Memphis Belle - the account of a young crew's bravery on their final mission. As the cameras shoot today's stars, yesterday's crew - the original 'Glory Boys' - remember the real shooting, when one direct hit could mean never going home again.

: Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth

Six programmes about the vitality and relevance of myth.
5: Love and the Goddess. 'Love is the burning point in life, and since life is sorrowful, so is love. The stronger the love, the more the pain, but love bears all things. Love is the pain of being truly alive.' Joseph Campbell talks with Bill Moyers about the origin of the idea of romantic love in the 12th century and looks at the great mythic theme of the Goddess as Isis, Gaia,
Mother Earth and even the Madonna. Producer Roger Stott

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
