Stephen D


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.
Adapted by Hugh Leonard from James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Stephen Hero
A Play of the Month presentation with
Starting from 'Once Upon a Time and a very good time it was...' James Joyce evokes his childhood, boyhood and youth through schooldays, holidays, and the whole process of growing up until he leaves Ireland 'to discover a mode of life or art whereby my spirit can express itself in unfettered freedom.'

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.
