: CONTRASTS

A series of music and arts features
VOLTAIRE IN ENGLAND with JACQUES MAURY of the Comédie Française as the young Voltaire
TIMOTHY BATESON as Alexander Pope and MARY HINTON as Pope's mother
Directed by LESLIE MEGAHEY
Written and produced by JOHN WELLS
It is not always remembered that Voltaire, when he was a young man, came to England and stayed here for almost three years, from the spring of 1726 to the autumn of 1728. Banished to a distance of fifty leagues from Paris after a quarrel with an aristocrat called de Rohan, he decided to take refuge here, and it was in England that he formulated the ideas of tolerance and liberty of conscience for which he was to campaign until his death in 1779. Although he met many of the leading Englishmen of his day very little is known about his visit. Tonight's programme is a reconstruction of his meeting with Pope-the' Mr. Popp' of his notebooks-based on their writings at the time, and in particular on Voltaire's Philosophic Letters, burned by the public hangman on his return to Paris.

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.
