: Strange Landscape

Second in a five-part series in which
Christopher Frayling investigates the art and philosophy of the Middle Ages. The Fires of Faith. As medieval society, still haunted by the terrible spectre of the Apocalypse and the day of judgment, struggled to cope with the changes overtaking it, religious dissidents paid a terrible price fortheir non-conformism. Francis of Assisi's belief in a life of poverty led him into conflict with an often extravagant
Church, although he was eventually reconciled and established a monastic order underthe auspices of Rome. But other dissidents were not so lucky. The Pope, alarmed at signs of disorder, called for a crackdown against heretics in the south of France. What followed proved to be one of the most brutal episodes in French history.
Director Derek Towers ; Series producer Jim Burge

Landscape: a Journey through the Middle Ages is available price £ 18.99 from booksellers.

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.
