Jack Rosenthal's Last Act


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
1/4. When the late Jack Rosenthal finally wrote his memoirs he did so in the form he understood best - as a screenplay. This series was abridged and adapted by his daughter Amy Rosenthal from her father's original scripts and features his wife, Maureen Lipman. This first programme starts just before Rosenthal's birth and follows him up to his days as an aspiring writer at the University of Sheffield.

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.
