All argument is against them, but all belief is for them
(SAMUEL JOHNSON )
The lady in the hotel bar, the priest reading his breviary, the old man in the children's room - were they all apparitions of the dead? And do such phenomena, experienced today, throw any sort of light on Christ's appearances in the 40 days following His death?

: Play of the Month: Don Juan in Hell

by Bernard Shaw
[Starring] Christopher Plummer, Michael Redgrave, Michael Hordern, Vivien Merchant

From The Great Hall, Blenheim Palace
The Don Juan legend - modern style - out of Mozart by Bernard Shaw. It concerns the Don, his victim the Commander, a jealous mistress and the Devil, who sit in Hell and discuss its merits compared with the Other Place. The core of their argument is that a Don Juan is not a conqueror but a slave to the Life Force, personified by all the women who woo and win a man to be the father of their children.

: A Reporter Returns

Rene Cutforth was the BBC's special correspondent for the first tragic year of the Korean War.
It was an assignment that culminated with the heroic stand of the Gloucesters at the Imjin River. For three nights and two days this British battalion held at bay the main thrust of the Chinese army until, surrounded and with water and ammunition exhausted, they tried to break out exactly 20 years ago today. Of the 741 men in the battalion, only 46 reached their own lines.
Soon after this, RENÉ CUTFORTH left Korea. In one short year he had seen this small nation briefly become the centre of world attention and nearly die of it.
By early spring, Korea was a ruin. It was hard to find a wall big enough to keep the Siberian wind off, while you lit a cigarette.
Now RENÉ CUTFORTH returns to see what this divided country has made of its ruin since then.
Produced by RICHARD TAYLOR

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.

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.
