Episodes in the history of diplomacy written and introduced by Derek Wilson 1:The Diplomat as Spy
Throughout history diplomats have been regarded as 'honest men sent to lie abroad for the good of their country', to coin a celebrated phrase from the 16th century. But diplomats have been many things, undertaken many functions. This series looks at six aspects of diplomacy, starting with the use of ambassadorial powers for espionage and intrigue, especially by Spanish envoys to the court of Elizabeth I.
With the voices of BERNARD BROWN , MICHAEL JENNER , UNDA POLAN, DAVID SINCLAIR and JAMES SNELL

Turner in Wales - Aspects of Landscapes
In 1792 when he was 17, the painter J. M. W. Turner first visited Wales. In the next six years he made four more visits -and then, although he lived until 1851, never returned. The paintings from these tours are being shown at an exhibition at the Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno. But what of the country that inspired those works? The programme looks at four paintings and asks how other travellers in Wales, then and now, have reacted to those 'aspects of landscapes'. Compiled and produced by SIAN LLOYD

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.
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.
