Well-known interviewers choose the people they wish to interview
' When I first met Cyril Connolly , perhaps Britain's most respected living man-of-letters, he was a daunting figure to a rather un-literary young man. But his interests as an author, critic, journalist, and editor are as wide as his sardonic humour is pervasive: it was easy to see why his reputation for conversation has been as great through his life as for his vast erudition ...'
... is why Richard Kershaw talks to

The Hymn and Think Man
Britain's own version of America's Billy Graham operates from an office over a dry-cleaner's shop in Eastbourne, Sussex. He has a public relations officer, a business organisation and a fully-equipped studio where ' gospel messages ' are recorded for transmission by radio stations in the U.S.A., Europe, and the Far East.
Yet few people have heard of Dr. Eric Hutchings , although his crusade meetings are often packed and he has been an Evangelist for more than twenty years.
Tonight's programme takes a close look at this home-grown business of Evangelism and shows what people think of Dr. Hutchings as a man, and how they regard his crusades

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.
