by WILLIAM NICHOLSON A film starring
Joss Ackland , Claire Bloom I never knew that love could hurt so much, yet I love you, and all I want is to love you.
Beyond every door I hear your voice saying to me - 'This is the land of shadows ... Real life hasn't begun yet. '
In January 1950 the writer C. S. Lewis received a fan letter from an American woman called Joy Davidman. Lewis was then 51 years old, and a confirmed bachelor.
The letter interested him, and he answered it. Out of this slight first contact grew a passion that shattered and transformed his life.

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.
