: ATLANTIC COLLEGE

The story of the first sixth-form international school in the world, where students from forty countries are learning to break down international barriers in education
Narrated and produced by BRIAN HOEY
Holiday-makers on the South Wales coast are used to seeing athletic-looking young men acting as lifeguards or in charge of rescue boats. This is but one of the activities in the curriculum of the first international sixth-form college in the world at St. Donat's Castle near Llantwit Major; a high academic standard is also demanded. The Castle was once the retreat of William Randolph Hearst. the famous American newspaper tycoon. Founded in 1962, the college now houses nearly 300 students.

The Giving Time
A new radio comedy by Gwyn Thomas
In the belief that solitude corrupts and solitary carolling corrupts utterly, Theo Morley decides to re-form the town choir in order to bring back the shine and the glory to Christmas. He draws up a new manifesto and dreams of a miracle, only to discover that ' miracles drive blind and what one man prays for often ends up in the lap of another.'

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.
