Thirty-Minute Theatre These Men are Dangerous 2: Hitler


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.
An emaciated young man is moving from doss-house to doss-house in the Vienna of 1909. He is struggling desperately to receive recognition as an artist, but all he receives is abuse. He makes friends with a wily down-and-out called Reinhold Hanisch who for his own ends wants to help sell the paintings. But Hanisch is to remember his brief association with the young artist, for his name is Adolf Hitler.
Kenneth Colley 's gaunt and already fanatical Hitter strikingly suggested the Nazi leader as he might have been at that time THE SUN

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.
