: Open Space

Series of programmes made by members of the public.
Stamping Out Books. The public library service grew, in part, out of the temperance movement in the 1830s - an anxiety to provide people with somewhere else to go apart from the pub. Now library opening hours, book-purchase funds and staffing have been drastically cut and privatisation is on the agenda. To make her film Jill Wight , director of the National Library Campaign, has brought together many supporters including Melvyn Bragg , who says: "It's a marvellous system and it's been let slide.... when a society starts to chew off its own best bits then you're in real trouble - and the library service is certainly one of the best bits about this country."

: Living Islam

Last in this series exploring what it means to be a Muslim in the modern world.
The Last Crusade? While the west lives in fear of an Islamic jihad (holy war), Muslims believe that it is they who are being persecuted - by hostile armies in some countries, by their own governments in others, by the western media everywhere. From Bosnia to
Algeria, from Egypt to Nigeria, Muslims believe they face a new crusade and prepare themselves to oppose it.
In his last programme Akbar Ahmed offers the voice of moderation which has always been at the heart of Islam. He argues that the majority of Muslims want to live their lives in peace, but the more they feel their faith is under attack, the more angry and violent their reaction will be.
Producer John Percival
Executive producers Paul Kriwaczek and Hugh Purcell

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.
