Tusitala - the Teller of Tales: Weir of Hermiston ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON


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.
Continuing the season of plays and readings to mark the centenary of the death of Robert Louis Stevenson. Another chance to hear Robert Forrest 's Sony Award-winning dramatisation of the unfinished novel often held to be Stevenson's masterpiece. It is a powerful love story set in 1813 in Edinburgh and the hills of the Scottish Border country.

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.
