A Time of Hope


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.
C. P. Snow (1905-1980)
'I often write about people who, using the camp phrase, are part of the Establishment. But many of the characters I m most interested in are not figures of that kind.'
C. P. Snow's major series of 11 novels Strangers and Brothers - a subtle and ambitious exploration of Britain's professional classes over 50 years- has been adapted as a major new BBC series.
Snow's career began in science, and took him, via radar research in World War n, into government - the 'corridors of power', and the House of Lords. His novels examine the so-called Establishment from within its own borders - yet Snow, the son of a clerk, always felt himself to be an outsider - a position he thought essential for a writer.
The programme combines excerpts from the drama series with assessments of C. P. Snow from
Lord Wilson , Sir Patrick Nairne Sir Bernard Lovell Sir John Plumb and the novelist Susan Hill

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.
