: The Sunday Feature: The New Wave at 40

It became the trademark of a nation, a young vision of passionate affairs, of disenfranchised low-lifes and of rites of passage played out on the streets of Paris. The film auteurwas born. And before Francois Truffaut and the others had shot many feet of their grainy new high-speed film, it had acquired a name: the "new wave". Forty years on from the revolutionary tracts of Cahiers du
Cinema, Ian Christie re-examines the phenomenon of the "new wave", with the voices of Alain Robbe-Grillet ,
Claude Chabrol , Suzanne Schiffman , Ginette Vincendeau ,
Frederick Raphael and the late Louis Malle. Producer Simon Elmes

: Sunday Play: The Love of a Good Man

By Howard Barker.
On the battlefields of Flanders, shortly after the First World War, a commissioner for graves is regulating the mass burial of the fallen soldiers; a grieving mother is searching for her lost son; and the Prince of Wales is about to pick out the Unknown Soldier. Scabrous, erotic and immensely funny, the power of Barker's language shines in one of his most accessible and refreshing plays.

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.
