Glastonbury Power

An investigation by Peter France
Four hundred people wait on a hill for dawn on Midsummer Day ... 12,000 annually make a pilgrimage to a ruined monastery ... Others wait for the New Albion promised by the legends surrounding King Arthur....
No place in Britain is richer in myth and legend than Glastonbury. Did Joseph of Arimathea bring the Holy Grail here? Did King Arthur hold court here? Is the Tor the centre of Zodiacal signs which give it unseen power?
Peter France talks to people involved in all these questions and asks literary scholars, archaeologists, clergy and a professor of social psychology why Glastonbury has such power to satisfy so many and conflicting needs and outlooks. Producer PETER FIRTH (Bristol)

Hear No Evil, See No Evil

The story of Censorship in Hollywood written by ALEXANDER WALKER Narrator René Cutforth
Just as the metaphorical apple of Eden was followed by gripes of conscience, the discovery of the screen kiss brought on the symptomatic cramps of censorship to come (A Million and One Nights: TERRY RAMSAYE)
The early ' age of innocence in the American motion-picture industry didn' last very long. In 1915 the first censorship boards were set up and in 1930 the Will H. Hays Motion Picture Production Code came into being with a formidable list of ' thou shalt nots.'
Today hardly any of the old restraints hold. But the moralists could still strike back ... With the voices of RAMSAY WILLIAMS , PAUL MAXWELL PHIL BROWN. ALAN GIFFORD ROY STEPHENS. DON FELLOWS Producer

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.
