by CHARLES DICKENS dramatised in ten episodes by BETTY DAVIES starring 8: Two Brothers
Arthur observed that wherever he went he saw, or heard, or touched, the celebrated name of Merdie. He began to think it was curious that it should be everywhere, and that nobody but he should seem to have any mistrust of it. Though, indeed, he began to remember when he got to this that even he did not mistrust it; he had only happened to keep aloof from it.
Such symptoms, when a disease of the kind is rife, are usually the signs of sickening. with and with JOHN BULL

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.
