Evelyn Waugh


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.
' Shocked by a bad bottle of wine, an impatient stranger, or a fault in syntax, his mind, like a cinema camera, tracked in furiously forward to confront the offending object, with glaring lens ... he was absurd to many, but to some formidable.' A devastating self-portrait by Evelyn Waugh from the opening of one of his last books. The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold, which he frankly admitted was autobiographical. Evelyn Waugh died ten years ago and his personality is still an enigma to many.
This portrait of the writer is written by DOROTHY BAKER and based on CHRISTOPHER SYKES 'S recent biography.

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.
