: Terror! Robespierre and the French Revolution

In 1794, French revolutionary Maximilien Robespierre produced the world's first defence of "state terror", claiming that the road to virtue lay through political violence. This documentary combines dramatic reconstructions and archive material to examine his year in charge of the Committee of Public Safety - the state machine at the heart of Revolutionary France. Examining his legacy is political philosopher
Slavoj Zizek, who argues that terror in the cause of virtue is justifiable, and historian Simon Schama, who believes the road from Robespierre ran straight to the Gulag and the 20th-century concentration camp.
Director Carl Hindmarch ; Producer Mark Hayhurst

: Blood and Guts: a History of Surgery

3/5. Spare Parts. The series chronicling the brutal history of surgical procedures continues with a look at the development of transplant surgery, from a Nazi sympathiser to the latest miraculous life-saving operations in which almost everything, from heart to eyes, can be replaced. In the beginning, however, transplants killed rather than cured, because surgeons didn't understand that they were taking on one of the most efficient defence mechanisms known to man - the human immune system.

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.
