The Private Life of George III Written by NESTA PAIN , with Robert Stephens as George III 2: The Later Years
Narrator Roger Snowdon
' In a most affecting manner. he complained to me of the situation of a King in a Strait Waistcoat. He opened his waistcoat and showed us the strait waistcoat, taking down its long sleeves and strings. Never shall I forget the painful and unpleasant sight! Heavens! What a spectacle to see the dear, afflicted King standing in a strait waistcoat and tucking up himself the sleeves and strings until they might be wanted. After that, he walked about and talked wildly.' with the voices of CAROLE BOYD , EVA HADDON
(Robert Stephens is in ' Murderer ' at the Garrick Theatre, London)

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.
