Arena On the Road with Boggs

In the 1980s American artist
J S G Boggs stunned the art world by holding an exhibition of banknotes, drawn by himself. In one go, he broke moral, artistic and legal taboos-counterfeiting money, poking fun at the art world, and raising the question, "Is this art?" The film follows this controversial artist on a journey funded by his hand-painted banknotes through railway stations, supermarkets, restaurants, wine bars and art galleries, as he attempts to evade arrest and discover the real value of money - and art. Director Philip Haas
Series editors Nigel Finch , Anthony Wall

40 Minutes

A Cruel Ritual
'I was born and brought up in Britain. I was 8 years old when I was circumcised. I really thought I was going to die, because of the pain, having no anaesthetic. You have a lady holding your mouth so you cannot scream, you have two ladies on your chest and the other two holding the legs.'
Seven years ago, 40 Minutes' first film on female circumcision led to the law which banned it in this country. Today's film reveals that the practice of genital mutilation of young girls is still flourishing in Britain today. Producer Louise Panton Editor Caroline Pick

Rome 9.00pm BBC2

You can keep your Sopranos - if it's tall tales of violent Italians you want, Rome's the business. I know it over-reaches itself sometimes, but that's only because it aims high. It's not often that television attempts full-on, big-budget tragedy, and Rome not only pulls it off, but it also manages to be hilarious, sexy and thrillingly violent by turns. I'm missing it already.
Because tonight we bid a tearful vale! to the whole messy saga with a final episode based on the usual mix of love, death and great one-liners. Listen for Antony's idea of a hangover cure and Atia's parting shot across Livia'sbows.
Polly Walker as Atia should be inducted at once into the hall of fame for small-screen she-monsters. And if James Purefoy ever does better work than he has as Mark Antony, he'll be a lucky man. The once-great general tonight subsides into druggy despair: his reaction to the death of Cleopatra is heart-rending. And at the end of the game, who's holding all the chips? It's that blank-eyed human calculator Octavian, of course. David Butcher

and Horace James, Celia Robinson, Michael Slater, Lionel Wheeler, Gillian Phelps, Max Latimer

Big, Small, and Old are three stone gnomes who live in the front garden of No. 25 Telegraph Road. All three appear to lead such serene lives, Big fishing with his rod, Old fast asleep holding his spade, and Small feeding his frog all day. But their serenity is not all it might seem at first glance. Even stone gnomes can have trouble, trouble with the neighbours - especially when they are different.

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.
