: Afternoon Theatre

Aucassin and Nicolette is one of the oldest extant epics of European literature coming down to us in the form of a 13th-century Picardian manuscript, though the sources are said to be Arabic or even Greek. The Cornish poet Charles Causley has retranslated and adapted the text, working closely to the original ballad style and mood. An unusual mixture of medieval courtly love and low bawdy humour, it is the story of the passion of Aucassin, son of a count, for Nicolette, a Saracen captive, their separation and eventual reunion.

: The Restless Years

5: An Elusive Peace
The 1970s were a decade of extremes in the Middle East, from the October War of 1973 to the dramatic relaxation of tension between Israel and Egypt after President Sadat's historic journey to Jerusalem in 1977. But the issue of autonomy for the Palestinians of the West Bank remains unresolved, and there is continuing instability in Lebanon, as well as political uncertainty in Syria and Iraq. In spite of the enthusiasm of Camp David, comprehensive peace remains as elusive as ever. With contributions from many of the figures involved, Edward Mortimer looks at ten years of the search for peace in the Middle East.

: Prefaces to Shakespeare

Ronald Pickup presents a personal view of Julius Caesar.

'I've never believed that Shakespeare has to be dragged by the scruff of his neck into the 20th century, presenting, let us say, Julius Caesar as a "Hitler figure" and everybody else around him in jackboots. Julius Caesar is certainly a play about power-politics, but bound up with that is a strong moral sense.'

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.
