' Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
(arranged as a dialogue story)
Last episode: The Trial of the Knave of Hearts '
Production by Fenella Scott
Alice was having rather a difficult conversation with the Mock Turtle when, in the distance, she heard cries of ' The Trial's beginning.' The Gryphon seized her by the hand and hurried her off to where the King and Queen of Hearts were seated before a great crowd of little birds and beasts, as well as the Knave, the White Rabbit, and a whole pack of cards.

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.
