: Sir Walter Scottand History

by HUGH TREVOR-ROPER , Regius Professor of Modern History in the University of Oxford. A talk first broadcast on 15 August on the occasion of the bicentenary of Scott's birth.
It may seem odd that a novelist should be credited with a historical revolution, but those who have re-directed the course of history have almost all been non-historians or, at most. amateur historians: Machiavelli, Montesquieu, Herder, Hegel. Marx. And Sir Walter Scott was a historical innovator in this sense.

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.
