: THE CELTS

A series of eight broadcasts introduced by DR. ANNE Ross
3: The Celtic World
The classical writers of Greece and Rome noted down the habits of their Celtic neighbours and observed the ways in which they diffei ed from themselves. From their writings, and from the evidence of archaeology and the Celtic literatures we gain a convincing picture of Celtic life around the beginning of the Christian era, while the persistence of the Celtic tradition is borne out by the comments of modern travellers in Celtic regions yiich as Dr. Johnson.
Produced by Adrian Johnson
Study notes are available

: * BEYOND ARCHITECTURE

The ideas of Archigram by THEO CROSBY
The pluy-in city, a term coined by a group of young architects who call themselves Archigram. has become a faintly familiar, if forbidding, concept in some people's minds, without it-or their thinking—being clearly understood. Theo Crosby. architect, was one of the first to become aware of the group, its technological enthuiasms, and its spirit of enterprise.

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.
