What do we know about Guy Fawkes-the real man who has somehow got mixed up with the ancient ritual of November bonfires? We know some facts-that Guy Fawkes was a technical expert called in by the desperate men of the gunpowder plot. But we shall never know the whole truth. This programme looks at one possible version of what happened.

: CONTRASTS

A series of music and arts features
THE PITY OF WAR
Above all I am not concerned with Poetry. My subject is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity.
Wilfred Owen was perhaps the greatest of the young English poets who were killed in the First World War. Most of his later poems were conceived and written in the trenches in France. In writing them he tried to bring home to civilians in England the futility and wretchedness not only of trench life but of the war itself.
The Poet Laureate
C. Day-Lewis tells the story of Owen's life and Introduces readings from the poems and letters by Peter Wyngarde , Alan Dobie and Keith Barron

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
