A series of six programmes 4:LillieLangtry
I resent Mrs Langtry , she has no right to be intelligent, daring and independent as well as lovely. It is a frightening combination of attributes. (BERNARD SHAW) Adored by Oscar Wilde , painted by Millais and the mistress of the Prince of Wales, she was one of the most famous women of her generation. In her attitudes to social conventions, clothes and sex she was a creator and setter of fashions. As her grand-daughter Mary Malcolm says:
'She was a woman in advance of her time. Although she was no suffragette, in a male-dominated society she stood for the right of women to lead an independent, unshackled life.'

What is the real influence of Islam on the day-to-day life of ordinary Arabs, how significant is the fundamentalist movement and how does religion affect political life in various Arab countries?

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.
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.
