2: Within the Sheltered Courtyard
The second of two programmes on the letters of KWEI_LI
Compiled and presented by George W. Scott from two books by ELIZABETH COOPER
Twenty-five years after her marriage and the loss of her first child, Kwei-li, writing from Shanghai at the turn of the century, reveals her reactions to the changing atmosphere of the New China.
. These boys of ours are so much attracted by the glimpses they have had of European civilisation, that they look dewn upon their own nationality. They have been abroad only long enough to take on the veneer of Western education: it is a half-and-half knowledge: and it is these young men who become the discontented ones of China.'

: A Sleep of Prisoners

by CHRISTOPHER FRY with a specially recorded introduction by the author.
During a war four men are imprisoned in a church: the place not only confines them but it influences their dreams. The rivalries, hatreds and loves that exist between them are revealed in their sleeping thoughts - their dreams are not an escape but a way in which they learn about themselves.

: Ebla

What has been described as " the greatest archaeological find of a generation, perhaps of the century ' is the discoveiv in Svria of the city of Ebla. The name of Ebla was known to historians from inscriptions dating from the third and second millennia BC. but until quite recently no one knew where it was. However, an archaeological mission from the University of Rome led by a young professor, Paolo Matthiae , has established beyond doubt that Tell Mardikh. 30 miles south of Aleppo, is the site of ancient Ebla.

Presented by Professor David Oates. London University's Institute of Archaeology Producer BOB AXWORTHY

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.
