Burgess at 70

Synopsis

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.
The extraordinary career of Anthony Burgess - novelist, poet, screenwriter and cruic - began in 1960, when doctors told him he had no more than a year to live. Now, Burgess claims to be at work on the final chapter of his literary career: his autobiography. The first volume, Little Wilson and Big God is published this week. Last year, Russell Davies visited
Burgess in Venice on his 70th birthday, to talk about God. Manchester, fiction and opera. Writers Martin Amis and Paul Theroux assess the range of his extraordinary talents.

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.
