Viviette. A radio play by FREDERICK BRADNUM based on the novel Two on a Tower by THOMAS HARDY, with Sarah Badel and Michael Kitchen.
The lady of the manor scarcely knows of the existence of a tower on her estate until a young man from the village starts using it to look at the Stars. Astronomy is the only passion of his life, but it soon leads to a more earthly passion.

: In Place of War

A Secretary-General has two possibilities. Either he uses quiet diplomacy or a public statement. I prefer quiet diplomacy because I think one achieves more through this kind of approach, but this is not known to the public.
(OR KURT WALDHEIM)
2: Dr Kurt Waldheim
When the United Nations was formed a,t the end of World War II it was widely believed it would be the path to world government, and it certainly played a major role in Korea, Suez and the Congo. Since the death of Dag Hammarskjold, the early idealism about the UN as a peace-keeping force has diminished and with it the influence of subsequent Secretaries-General.
In a documentary profile of the present Secretary-General, David Wheeler assesses his effectiveness and looks at the shortcomings of the UN organisation.
Speakers include: DR WALDHEIM; THE LORD HOME OF THE HIRSEL; DEAN RUSK , former us Secretary of State; AHMED MEGUID , Egyptian Ambassador to the UN; CHAIM HERZOG , Israeli Ambassador to the UN; Chancellor of Austria, DR BRUNO KREISKY Producer LOUISE PURSLOW

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.
