The arts in action
Introduced by Humphrey Burton Tonight: My Homeland - a portrait of Hungary from exile. For the past 700 years, years of oppression and struggle for freedom, the poet in Hungary has been the teacher, the spiritual leader of his nation. With passion and courage he has searched for the essence of the country, for the predicament of its people. His words ignited the fuse of two revolutions - 1848 and 1956 - both crushed.
This anthology of Hungarian poetry, largely unknown in the West, is a reflection of the spirit, the history and the people of that country. Poems spoken by MICHAEL BRYANT and JUDI DENCH
Film editor DAVE KING

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
