: THE ROMANS

Eight programmes on the background of the Roman world
5: Ostia by M. W. FREDERIKSEN , Fellow of Worcester College. Oxford Ostia lay at the mouth of the river
Tiber and had a long history as the harbour town of Rome. The excavation of the last sixty years has revealed many of the buildings and housing blocks of the city centre. and fresh excitement has come quite recently when the remains of the f>rst harbour were unearthed during the construction of Rome's new civil aerodrome. The ruins of Ostia are a rival to those of Pompeii and Herculaneum: they have given a clear and detailed picture of the commercial activities. the social life and the style of living in a town at the height of the Roman Empire. With readings by Tim SEELY
Produced by Adrian Johnson
Second broadcast
M. K. Hopkins on Work and Slavery: September 20
A reading list can be obtained by sending a stamped addressed foolscap envelope to The Romans. [address removed].

JACK OVERHILL recalls his childhood and youth in the Cambridge, of fifty years ago.
The speaker, whose father was a shoemaker-a Snob in the local vernacular-was brought up under conditions of extreme poverty in a Cambridge far removed from the dignified University Town we more often hear about. He survived not only the poverty but a broken home and a nervous breakdown to become an author, lecturer in economics, and champion swimmer.

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.
