: Playwrights Past and Present: 10: Eugene O'Neill

Mr. C.M. Haines

Some plays must be seen to be enjoyed, but Eugene O'Neill's can safely be added to the library list. His characters are for the most part American, but their troubles and misunderstandings are not local or national, but arise from the stress and strain of the clash of temperaments.

: John Masefield and his Sea Poems

Mr. A.R. Bennett

Many poets, in many moods, have written of the sea but John Masefield is one of the few who really know it. It was his poems of the sea that first made his reputation. His first book, published in 1902, was 'Salt-Water Ballads', and his other books of poems and ballads have contained much of the sea and ships, whilst 'Dauber' remains unique in English poetry as a revelation of the life of the seaman in a wind-jammer, rounding the Horn in June, as seen, by a sensitive artist, from within.

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.

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