: THE THIRTIES IN BRITAIN

The Left
Compiled and narrated by CONSTANTINE FITZGIBBON
The Thirties were a period of political alignment, in some cases more apparent than real. The division between Right and Left, particularly once the Spanish Civil War had started, seemed absolute. It was the signing of the Nazi-Soviet Pact in August of 1939 that showed how basically fallacious this cleft was. Meanwhile to the men and women of the thirties. and particularly to those of the Left, theirs seemed a very real grouping of forces. This programme examines those forces through the eyes of those who were alive at the time.
Voices Include those of: Michael Ayrton , Arthur Calder -Marshall, Charles Duff , Peter Fleming , Reginald Groves , Goronwy Rees , Sir Richard Rees. John Somerfield , RandaU Swingler , Donald Taylor

: THE MONKS OF WESTMINSTER

by DOM DAVID KNOWLES formerly Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge
Today Westminster Abbey begins a year of celebrations to mark the 900th anniversary of its re-founding by the Confessor. From the seventh century to the Reformation the Abbey was the home of a Benedictine community; and it still, in some respects, bears the stamp of its long Benedictine history. Professor Knowles talks about the genius of Benedictinism and its traditional association with ' the church of the nation at Westminster.

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.
