: THE COMING OF DEMOCRATIC REVOLUTION

The first of two talks by J. R. POLE
Fellow of Churchill College and Reader in American History and Government in the University of Cambridge
Dr. Pole considers how the fact and the concept of political revolution have interacted in shaping the history of Europe and America since the late eighteenth century. Our view of this has itself been strikingly reshaped by the major work of the American historian Professor R. R. Palmer. The Ape of the Democratic Revolution, and Dr. Pole makes this book his starting-point.
Second talk: July 13

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
