The Mischief Makers


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.
Five studies in talent and perversity
4: Aleister Crowley
'Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.' 'Love is the law - law under will.'
Crowley, poet, mountaineer and black magician, looms in some ways larger and more sinister today than at the time of his death in a seedy Hastings boarding-house nearly 40 years ago. With help from those who knew him or have written about him - Arthur Calder-Marshall . Robin Cecil , Francis King ,
Angela Yorke - and the voice of the master himself. Frances Donnelly tries to disinter the facts from the fiction obscuring the life of a man who delighted in being styled 'the wickedest man in the world'.

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.
