A dramatised exploration of a village in Crete
Written and produced by Louis MacNeice
Anoyia is the largest and one of the strangest villages in that strange island, Crete. It lies high on the side of legendary Mount Ida and its people have always been noted for their independent spirit; during the second world war they played a leading part in the Resistance, and in 1944 the village was burned to the ground
. by the Germans. Today the rubble heaps still outnumber the houses.
This programme is not so much a ' documentary ' as an attempt to recapture the impact of this place on a foreign visitor-for it is as peculiar in its way as the Minoan remains in the plain below.

Talk by Owen Holloway
' The problem of the human heart in conflict with itself.' declared William Faulkner in his Nobel Prize speech, I alone can make good writing.' Owen Holloway suggests that this is no key to the novels and claims that Faulkner's importance is due to his understanding of the special resources of narrative art.

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.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
