: Heritage

In a series of six programmes Kenneth Hudson looks at the way we view history. 3:Ordinary Houses
'Working-men's cottages in Manchester last 40 years on average. This sounds strangely enough when one sees the beautiful, massive walls of newly built ones which seem to give promise of lasting a couple of centuries; but the niggardliness of expenditure, the neglect of all repair and the constant change of inhabitants accomplishes their complete ruin.' (FRIEDRICH ENGELS)
KENNETH HUDSON visits a miner's cottage in Durham, an 18th-century artisan's house in Lancaster and a Victorian tenement in Glasgow and discovers they are every bit as fascinating historically as a stately home.

: Antigone at Bradfleld

Bradfield College in Berkshire is probably the only place in the world where, every three years, lovers of drama can enjoy a Greek play in its original language in a small-scale replica of Epidaurus. The actors are students, the language unfamiliar, the weather unreliable, the stone seats arduous; yet the performances are sold out.
This documentary, recorded during rehearsals, looks at the century-old tradition and considers its chances of survival.
With the producer of Antigone,
Christopher Stace , the students, and members of staff. Reader Garard Green

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.
