Hannah Arendt , born 100 years ago this year, was among the most influential political thinkers of the 20th century. She invented one of the most controversial and resonant phrases of our time: "the banality of evil". As a young
German Jew she fled to America in 1941 with her husband Heinrich. Yet her name is historically entwined with a man who became a Nazi: Martin Heidegger. This drama documentary, using private letters and interviews, tells the story of the 50-year relationship between the teacher and the student. That Martin Heidegger was her lover came as a shock to many: that she agreed to a reconciliation after the war still raises questions today. Producers/Directors Penny Leicester and Emma Harding

DH Lawrence and his wife visited two wealthy young Americans in 1929, hoping that they might finance an edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover. In Stephen Lowe 's darkly sensuous play the quartet proves to be a potent, unpredictable combination.
Director Martin Jenkins
Another chance to hear the late Roger Deakin's evocative and personal portrait of the changing character of the land surrounding his timber-framed farmhouse as the seasons unfold. The garden is a wild untamed place: a patch of ancient Suffolk extending into four meadows, a moat, two ponds and a small wood.

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.
