Firing a pot is a necessary evil for some potters, for others it is a mystical, magical experience. Here, a wide range of potters talk about their attitudes towards firing their work and their great successes and downright disasters: raku potters talk about instant results; wood-firing potters describe teams of people stoking a kiln at 15-minute intervals over seven or more days and nights; a bone-china potter tells of the effect an earthquake had on her kiln full of exhibition work; and one potter describes the sense of being fired himself when he had to stand by and witness his whole studio and much of his life's work go up in flames. Presented by Emmanuel Cooper.

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.
