: THE CELTS

A series of eight broadcasts introduced by DR. ANNE Ross
2: The origins of the Celtic Peoples
Traces of an iron-using people, who spoke some form of Celtic language, are found in Central Europe by about 600 B.C. They are known as the Hallstatt people. By about 500
B.C. they moved further west and the second phase of Celtic culture can be traced to La Tène in Switzerland. From there the Celts spread swiftly across Europe, conquering and settling. Their fortunes rose, fluctuated and finally declined with the Roman conquest of Gaul in 58 B.C.
Produced by Adrian Johnson

: THE MEANING OF LIFE

Two talks on a problematical concept by R. W. HEPBURN
Professor of Philosophy in the University of Edinburgh
1: Some current arguments
Christian apologists make claims and assertions about ' the meaning of life.' But ' What is the meaning of life? ' is a doubly perplexing question. It is perplexing not simply because the correct answer is hard to find. We are perplexed no less to understand what sort of answer would satisfy us; what would count as an answer.
Second broadcast
Some appraisals: Thursday at
10.40 p.m.

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.
