A Doll's House


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.
by HENRIK IBSEN translated from the Norwegian by Michael ueveb with Ian McKellen Susan Fleetwood Michael Gough David Buck and Sheila Reid
This new production of Ibsen's play celebrates the centenary of its world premiere at the Royal Theatre, Copenhagen, on 21 December 1879. Its message that marriage is not sacrosanct, that man's authority in his home should not go un-challenged, and that the prime duty of anyone is to find out who he or she really is and to become that person, is almost as explosive today as it was a hundred years ago.

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.
