Characters in the Play :
A modern prologue, a sixteenth century play and back again to our own times for the epilogue ;—but 'the play's the thing ' and the centre of interest is a room in Cumnor Hall, once the residence of the Earl of Leicester. A thick, black curtain divides the sparsely furnished room from an outer hall, and here is reflected nne of the famous historical sidelights of the Elizabethan era.

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
