: ' GRANDMOTHER'S LESSON'

A short story by Arturo Barea translated by Use Barea and read by Denis McCarthy
Big Granny was a country woman with a massive personality-in every sense of the word. Every so often she would visit her grandchildren in Madrid with a basket of delicious cottage cheeses. In this story Arturo Barea recalls her succesful attempt to convey the cheeses into the city without paying food-tax.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the National Association of Boys' Clubs by Frankie Vaughan
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Frankie Vaughan , Esq., National Association of Boys' Clubs, [address removed]
What a boy does in his leisure hours affects his whole future-the kind of man he becomes, his attitude to his family, how he regards his work-all these depend on his character. Boys' Clubs aim to develop a sense of responsibility and good citizenship among their members. The great increase in the number of boys leaving school makes it essential to open new clubs in many places, especially in new housing estates and new towns. This needs men and women and money. Frankie Vaughan, who is making this appeal, is himself an old Boys' Club member

: 'ANNA KARENINA'

by Leo Tolstoy
Adapted for radio in twelve episodes by H. Oldfield Box
From the translation by Constance Garnett
Produced by Martyn C. Webster
EPISOBE 11
Other parts played by members of the BBC Drama Repertory Company
Even in the country, living on Vronsky's estate, the situation between Vronsky and Anna has continued to deteriorate. Because only love binds them together, Anna can scarcely bear to let him out of her sight; and her separation from her little son Seryozha is an ever-increasing grief to her.
Vronsky, for his part, feels that his liberty is being unreasonably circumscribed. It is not his fault that he and Anna are not married. The fault is Anna's, because she has refused her husband's offer of a divorce. Anna has at last agreed that she will apply to her husband to divorce her, though she feels it unlikely that he will consent to do so. Karenin, she knows, is now entirely under the influence of the Countess Lidia Ivanova , whose Christianity is of a kind that has little room for charity.
Vronsky and Anna have now moved to Moscow, where they are awaiting Karenin's reply. But the weeks pass, and no reply comes.

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.
