King Lear," Act IV., Sc. 6,
The Country, near Dover.
Gloucester, his eyes put out by the Duke of Cornwall, has been thrust out of the gate of his castle and told to smell his way to Dover. Edgar, his banished son, meets him on the heath and without disclosing his relationship, undertakes to guide him to Dover. Arrived at Dover, Gloucester tells Edgar to lead
,him to the edge of the cliff, meaning to throw himself over. Edgar pretends to do so. Gloucester is led to some uneven ground, falls forward a few feet, and is persuaded by Edgar that he has fallen to the foot of the cliff, and yet escaped death by a miracle.
LEONARD GOWINGS.
As a result of the King's quarrels with his Nobles the French army under Louis, tlie Dauphin, is on English soil. King John is dying, poisoned by a monk. The Dauphin hears that his supplies have been wrecked on the Goodwins and the rebel English nobles have returned to their allegiance. The King's dying moments are cheered by the news of the Dauphin's offer of peace, and in the concluding lines of the play, Philip Falcon-bridge points the moral :
" Nought shall make us rue, If England to itself do rest but true."

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
