: At the Gates of the City

by MURRAY WATTS
On Easter eve 387 - exactly 1,600 years ago - the Public Orator of Milan, a brilliant philosopher called Augustine, was baptised by Bishop Ambrose.
In this sequel to One August in Milan, which re-created the story of Augustine's early life up to his conversion, the career of the new convert is traced through his return to North Africa and his reluctant ordinations as priest and bishop, to the final years of his life, when the heathen hordes swept across the Roman
Empire, eventually reaching the city of Hippo, where the scholar-bishop lay dying.

A series of five programmes Presented by Anthony Smith 3:Power and Responsibility
The Balbina dam in the Amazon Basin is due to flood an area the size of Devon, to provide hydro - electricity insufficient to power the nearest town. Within cable distance is an even bigger installation, using only a fraction of its power capacity as there is no demand for the electricity it produces.
Anthony Smith visits some of the most threatening projects in the Amazon Basin, and examines the motives of their Brazilian developers.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
