5: Forty-live years of regional planning
A documentary on the Ruhr Regional
Planning Authority in West Germany by Richard HOOPER using material collected specially in Essen. The Regional Authority was founded in 1920 by the (equivalent of) county boroughs and county councils in the Ruhr. The significance for us in the United Kingdom is that the Ruhr Authority has executive powers over roads, railways, and green spaces of regional importance. The problems of the Ruhr are com parable to those of our own underdeveloped regions: a poor environment. left over from the Industrial Revolution; the decline of coal and the need to attract growth industries; loss in population through migration

: * LAW IN ACTION

Blood Tests and Bastardy by RUPERT CROSS
Vinerian Professor or English Law in the University of Oxford
It is always sad for a Court to declare a child illegitimate. But. as was said in a recent case, there are even graver wrongs than bastardising a child. Professor Cross investigates these wronKS and considers how they can be remedied, especially by blood-group evidence.

: ARTAUD LE MOMO

by Charles Marowitz
A study of Antonin Artaud and The Theatre of Cruelty with Anthony Jacobs as Antonin Artaud
Others taking part: HERON CARVIC
DOUGLAS HANKIN Denis MCCARTHY and ALAN WHEATLEY
The programme includes contributions in English and French from
Roger Blin , Arthur Adamov Henri Thomas and Dr. Gaston Ferdiere
Produced by DOROTHY BAKER
Second broadcast
Charles Marowitz writes: I have tried in tonight's programme to put together the facts of Artaud'a life, using his own words and those of the people who knew him. I have not been wholly objective. as I have acknowledged my own obsessive love for the man and the artist and refused merely to treat him as a subject for a thesis. At times. I have felt like a detective trying to reconstruct a terrible crime in which a whole society is responsible for the methodical destruction of one of its most gifted members.'

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
