An enquiry into the power of a familiar poem.
Introduced by Henry Livings.

"Tyger tyger burning bright
In the forests of the night
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry"

Why does this poem by William Blake 1757-1827 stick in the mind, and seize the imagination of so many different people?
Among those taking part: Kathleen Raine, Robert Graves, Richard Hoggart, Stuart Hall, Adrian Mitchell, and pupils and teachers from St. Christopher School, Letchworth; The Manchester Grammar School; Duddeston Manor School, Birmingham; Peacock Street Infants School, Manchester.

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.
