: THE NOISES IN THE SOUNDLESS ROOM

by Julia Greenwood
In May 1834 Thomas Carlyle and his wife moved into a house in Cheyne Row, Chelsea. It was pleasantly placed. with green fields behind it and a view of the Thames, but as time went on the snags began to appear. Julia Green wood talks about the life of Carlyle and his wife in. Chelsea, and of some of the trials they met with, including the ' bogues,' damp, stopped-up drains, and above all, the noise.

Produced by David Davis
If, in the pursuit of amateur archaeology, in a Roman Camp you come across a rusty wheel bearing the initials 'L.B.C.' it is unwise to conclude that the L stands for Fifty (old Roman) and the B.C. for ' Before Christ,' or, indeed,
• that the wheel is either genuine Roman or even a genuine Roman forgery which the B.C. suggests.

: BOOKS THAT INFLUENCED ME IN YOUTH

A series of six talks by Bertrand Russell, o.M
2-Turgenev:
The Romance of Revolt
I found in Turgenev, first of all, a society of eager and hopeful young people such as I could have loved if I had known them, and infinitely more sympathetic to me than any young people whom I knew before I went to Cambridge. They combined hope and indignation in proportions which were entirely congenial to me. They were oppressed or seduced by cynical aristocrats who made me shudder. They attempted heroic tasks, and came to grief heroically. They won my heart, and retained it down to the moment of their final defeat by the Bolsheviks.'
(: originally broadcast in the BBC's General Overseas Service) Next Thursday: Romance in the abstract in the plays of Ibsen

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.
