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.
Presented by Richard Baker
Peter Pan is the Royal Shakespeare Company's big hit at the Barbican Theatre. RICHARD BAKER flew in to talk to directors Trevor Nunn and John Caird about the formidable problems caused by an ambitious production which emphasises the serious side of J M. Barrie 's classic. Barrie based it on the experiences he had as a child when his brother died at the age of 12; Peter Pan cannot grow up beyond the age of 12. Andrew Birkin , author of The Lost Boys, observes that the play was rewritten 36 times and the RSC have gone back to the original version.
Bernard MacLaverty is a novelist who was born in Belfast and now lives on the island of Islay. Like Barrie's, much of his writing derives from his childhood, when at the age of 12 MacLaverty's father died. His short stories ' My Dear Palestrina ' and ' Phone Fun ' were adapted for television. His new book, Cal, deals movingly with the sectarian violence in Belfast.

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.
