2.5 World History
' A Roman Emperor: Hadrian'
E. A. CRADDOCK
During the Empire of Hadrian in the second century after Christ the Roman Empire reached the height of its power and grandeur. It is generally accepted that Hadrian himself was one of the greatest emperors who ever lived. In this afternoon's broadcast two dramatic interludes will give listeners an impression of the atmosphere that surrounded this great leader. In the first, a scene set in the Imperial Palace at Rome will show in what esteem he was held by his advisers. The second scene will take place in an encampment behind one of the numerous walls that he built, and is a reconstruction of a true incident in which a mad slave attempted to kill the Emperor.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
