A commentary on his life and work by JASON EPSTEIN , V. S. PRITCHETT
Edmund Wilson - critic, editor. novelist, reporter, poet. social observer - was perhaps the greatest man of letters of his time. A close friend of F. Scott Fitzgerald at Princeton before World War I, he embarked upon a writing career that continued unabated for nearly 60 years until his death last year.
Few of his contemporaries have ranged so widely in their interests and his works include Axel's Castle, To the Finland Station, The Scrolls from the Dead Sea, Apologies to the Iroquois and Patriotic Gore. Compiled and introduced by Philip French

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.
