: Voyage to Recovery

Yachtsman Val Howells from Pembrokeshire talks to Gerry Monte describing his recent 30,000-mile voyage, alone, around the world - a voyage in which he says he was in his poorest-ever mental, emotional and physical state, almost broken, both spiritually and financially, by the strain of building two ocean-going yachts in which he and his son competed in the solo race across the Atlantic.
For Val that race ended after three days, but when he sailed back from his round-the-world trip, three years after setting out, he claims he came back a different man.
In this conversation he describes losing his rudder half-way across the Atlantic, cruising the magic islands of the Pacific, and whaling in an open boat off the Azores and all the time sailing to find himself. BBC Wales

: Prefaces to Shakespeare

Sir Michael Redgrave gives the first talk introducing this winter's season of Shakespeare's plays on BBC2
Henry IV, Part 1
' think one of the driving forces of this play is that Shakespeare takes both sides - that of Prince Hal and that of Hotspur - and by taking both sides he's able to show how ephemeral political loyalties can be and were.'
Series producer ALAN WILDING iNext Friday: Anthony Quayle on Henry IV, Part 2; Part 1 is shown on BBC2 on Sunday)

HARRIET: It's all changed, Mr Pickard.
Miss Harriet Booth is just too old and set in her ways to change now - however hard her new neighbours try to be her friends. Tragically, she will never understand the extent of their goodwill. Directed by BERNARD KRICHEFSKI

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.
