Siegfried Sassoon: Poet's Pilgrimage


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.
1886-1967 with Hugh Burden as Siegfried Sassoon
Hugh Dickson as The Reader
' My real biography is my poetry:
Last thing at night, in solitude serene,
I am unpossessed of all that I have been.
It is as though I were about to go
Some journeying far beyond what now I know.'
' Siegfried Sassoon has always seemed to me a parable of 20th-century man. To most of those acquainted with his name he is essentially the Fox-hunting man, the Infantry officer and poet of the First World War. Few knew him for what he was beneath outward appearances - prophet, sage, pilgrim, a Mr Valiant for Truth going to the Celestial City ':
Dame Felicitas Corrigan , OSB, a close friend of Sassoon during his later years, who presents the programme.

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.
