In a series of six programmes Kenneth Hudson looks at the way we view history. 1: Everyday Furniture
'Marie Antoinette 's writing table is a wonderful piece of artistry, but I feel sure that
Marie Antoinette never wrote on it. The dear lady dared not. She might have spoiled it by upsetting some ink on it. It is a piece of the highest possible technique - call it a piece of fine art - but, alas, it does not seem to me to be a piece of furniture.' In 1710 the young
Robert Gillow 's father languished in Lancaster prison as a Catholic recusant. Apprenticed to a cabinet maker, the boy was to become one of the great designers of furniture for the British middle class throughout the Empire. Early this century Lucian Ercolani based his designs on the traditional Windsor chair which had been made in High Wycombe for generations.

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.
