' Blenheim Palace'
Blenheim Palace was designed by Vanbrugh, famous as an architect and as a dramatist at the beginning of the eighteenth century. It was given to the first Duke of Marl-borough as a reward for his victories, Parliament defraying most of the E300,000 expenditure. In the grounds are a monument to the great Duke and a lake made by ' Capability Brown'. The trees round the monument are so grouped as to represent the disposition of the forces in the battle of Blenheim.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
