: The Wednesday Play: Mad Jack

by Tom Clarke
Protest has become easy and respectable now. But for a young subaltern in 1917 to speak out against the horrors of the Western Front was unthinkable. One did. Second-Lieutenant Siegfried Sassoon, a young English country gentleman who made public his revulsion against the war.
This film, directed by Jack Gold, tells of the week in a Liverpool hotel when Sassoon re-examined his protest in spite of its complete rejection by Authority and the public.

: Personal Reflections Baroness Moura Budberg

talks to James Mossman
Prison wasn'fun ... but it was a remarkable school for life ... it brings you down to such reality ...
Gorky was not a man, he was a universe
Baroness Moura Budberg is one of the most remarkable but lesser-known women of her generation. Now in her 70s, she was born of a Russian liberal family and as a young girl knew life at the Imperial Courts of the Tsar and Kaiser Wilhelm II. In 1917 she was imprisoned by the Bolsheviks and later met the great Russian writer Maxim Gorky , some of whose works she has subsequently translated. She came to England in 1933 and met many of the famous literary people of the time, notably H. G. Wells , who was a close and intimate friend.
In this conversation with James Mossman she gives a remarkable and moving account of her early life in Russia and the people with whom she was closely associated after the Revolution.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
