The rise and fall of repetitive rhythms is one of the hallmarks of American composer Philip Glass's music. The English
National Opera's production of his Egyptian opera Akhnaten was a huge success. For some, though, the music is a totally numbing experience. In the week he returns to London for a concert of his music, the composer talks to
Michael Berkeley about the dramatic shape which underpins his work and about some of his latest projects.

But Which Way to Go?
Britain's fashion industry has a split personality. Glittering catwalks contrast with factories employing some of the country's lowest-paid workers. The classy 'cashmere and tweeds' English style is popular abroad, yet the British are among the world's least stylish dressers. Britain's innovative designers are internationally acclaimed, but foreign buyers complain of shoddy workmanship and late deliveries. With the crucial autumn collections approaching, can the industry resolve these contradictions? Francine Stock finds out. Producer HEATHER PAYTON

In the Middle Ages, every prudent desert traveller would pack a mirror to give protection against the lethal stares of basilisks. And it was common knowledge that if flying dragons left their dank and venomous caves for the air above Britain, trouble was brewing for the king or church.
Peter Hogarth , of the University of York, tells some tales about the role of mythical beasts in medieval society, and discovers that the greatest slayer of dragons was not St George but a Swedish zoologist.

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.
