David Davis reads The Triumph of Charis by BEN JONSON
BBC One London

Gold! Gold!! Gold!!!

The BBC 1 Documentary
Gold is just a metal - one of the more useless. Yet its attraction is enormous. People have fought and killed for it; crossed continents, climbed mountains and gone to the depths of the earth for it. The gleam in the quartz, the flash in the pan, the 1,000-to-one chance of finding a nugget - how and why do they do it?
The story is romantic, surprising and full of grand delusions. Why do we dig gold out of a hole in the ground, carry it across the-world, and bury it in other holes with guards over it? Gold is no longer officially money. There are millions of tons of it lying in vaults around the world, yet nobody can touch it. How did we got into this insane situation? As BEN JONSON said, Gold is but muck

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
