On page 19 you may find a recommendation to do what Miranda and Johnny did-to found a family journal. Remember, it should be a private journal. Miranda's Hayfield Herald was more ambitious. The story they went after was nearly the scoop of a local lifetime, but what a nuisance facts can be!

Adapted for radio as a serial in twelve parts by Howard Agg
Produced by Anthony Pelissier
5 — 'The Search'
Philip Carey arrives in Paris, where he is to study art at Amitrano's School. He takes a room in the Latin Quarter and soon feels that he has been in Paris all his life. His friend Herbert Lawson, who is already there, takes him along to the studio. Here Philip is introduced to Fanny Price, an earnest, unprepossessing girl who takes her work very seriously and is determined to become a great artist.' In her blunt, uncouth manner she tries to help Philip with his drawing, and his friends even suggest that she is in love with him. It is during this period of his life that he meets many Latin Quarter ' characters,' including Cronshaw, a minor poet and philosopher.

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.
