: Mr. WILLIAM GERHARDI : Reading ' The Big Drum,' from his book ' Pretty Creatures '

BORN in St. Petersburg only thirty-three years ago. Mr. Gerhardi literally leapt into fame with his first book. ' Futility,' a novel on Russian themes. In this, with a knowledge of Russia drawn from his experience in his own youth, and later as Military Attache at Petrograd during the Revolution and in Siberia from 1918 to 1920, he wonderfully portrayed the strange enigma of the Russian mind. His work since then has aroused much difference of opinion amongst the critics, but his brilliance is undisputed, and his latest novel, Jazz and Jasper,' shows that he has lost none of it so far. The story that he will read tonight is a keenly-drawn little study of the reactions of a girl in love with the man who plays the big drum.

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.

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.
