The Man Who Was Nobody

Synopsis

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.
by KEITH WATERHOUSE with and / have often seen reminiscences of people I have never heard of and I fail to see - because I do not happen to be a Somebody - why my diary should not be interesting. (CHARLES POOTER ) The Diary of a Nobody has continued to interest readers for nearly 100 years. But what is known of its authors George and Weedon Grossmith and why does a record of trivial suburban life in late-Victorian London remain fresh and funny today? Narrator Ned Sherrin
Producer ROSEMARY HART. Stereo
(Re-broadcast on Sunday at 10.15pm) (Judi Dench and Michael Williams are in 'Mr and Mrs Nobody'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.
