7.1 Village Prospects
Explored by BRIAN MILTON
A series of seven programmes 1: Home Counties Feudal
Only 27 miles from London, Bramfield - together with four other Hertfordshire villages - is still owned by one family. Well off the main road, but with plenty of work in neighbouring towns, it seems to provide the best of all possible worlds, a contented stable society. The only controversy is over the introduction of street lighting, the biggest threat the possible expansion of Stevenage six miles away.
But could Bramfield survive undisturbed without the benevolent protection of its patrons?

' Imagine what it means to see, day after day,
Aegisthus sitting in my father's chair, wearing
The clothes he wore, pouring the same libations
At the attar where he killed him: and, last outrage
The murderer going to his bed with her -
Must I still call her mother? - with his mistress.'
Before the House of Agamemnon, now the house of Aegisthus, at Mycenae.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
