One Pair of Eyes: A Taste of Privilege

A series of highly personal films.

Kenneth Tynan remembers Oxford as A Taste of Privilege
"My generation was liberated by Oxford: but it also confined us and marked us for life. Nothing has ever topped the exhilaration and privilege I felt then.
Today's Oxford is like a ghost university, full of usurpers and tourists, simply decor against which to be happily young."
With some of his contemporaries: The Rt. Hon. Anthony Wedgwood Benn, M.P., Robin Day, Alan Brien, John Wain, Alan Beesley, Tony Richardson.

A Day to Remember

'Cruel glasses.'
'Tribune of the people.'
'A breath of fresh air.'
Probably no broadcaster has provoked such varied reactions, figured in so many cartoons or occupied such a prominent place on our television screens for so long as Sir Robin Day.
This special programme to mark Sir Robin's 30 years of broadcasting for BBC Television features many of the memorable moments - controversial, moving, hilarious and unintended - of his career, and many of the famous personalities - including six prime ministers, two American presidents, Fidel Castro, Winnie Mandela, Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise - who've featured one way or another in the 'Grand Inquisitor's' life.

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.
