The Age of Chivalry
This Friday, a major exhibition opens at the Royal Academy,
London, on the arts of Medieval England - the age of the 100 Years' War and the Peasants' Revolt, of Chaucer and the Black Prince.
Malcolm Billings presents an introduction to the Age of Chivalry and visits some of the courts, castles and cathedrals that remain. In his journey through the England of the Plantagenets, he concentrates on the legacy of the upper strata of society: the kings, the clerics and the knightly classes who created most of the art and artefacts that remain.
But he talks, too, about popular street cries, about erotic misinterpretations of courtly songs - and something of the real-life Canterbury Pilgrims. Producer DANIEL SNOWMAN

Let's Get the Show on the Road Small-scale touring companies seem an ideal way of taking theatre to a wider audience. But these companies must confront not only the rigours of life on the road, but also the increasingly popular idea that drama must be more related to the community in which it's performed. So what's the future for these 'hit and run' groups? Joyce MacMiUan reports. Producer JOHN GOUDIE

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.
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.
