: Frost over America

The first in the new series of DAVID FROST Emmy award winning shows recorded in New York and Hollywood.
Tonight DAVID FROST talks to Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor about their work and life together.
BURTON: ' I think the turning point in my life was meeting Phil Burton (my stepfather) when I was a small boy. Otherwise I would presumably have become a miner like all my brothers, and because of my plausibility and glibness would obviously have become a miner's agent, thereby a Member of Parliament and a more outrageous rogue than I am now. But life has been extremely kind to me: I'm rich, I'm reasonably well known and I have a sort of housewife who looks after me who's not bad.'
Burton recalls his childhood in Wales, tells of some amusing early experiences in the theatre and predicts his life as an Oxford Don next year: ' One of the things I want to see is Elizabeth giving high tea to the undergraduates with a low cut dress, wearing diamonds in her ears and one through her nostrils.'
Produced for Westinghouse by PETER BAKER

: He Who Dares

Six true stories of people who survived against all odds
1: In the Midst of an Empty Sea
As an airline pilot, Henri Bour dens had flown to every corner of the globe. But his real ambition was to sail around the world. Three years ago it looked as though he and his wife Jose would realise this dream-until their yacht was wrecked on a desert island in the Arafura Sea. They had a Bible and Shakespeare - and even gramophone records. What they didn'have was food, or any hope of rescue. How do 20th-century castaways cope with total isolation and the prospect of almost certain death?
Produced by DAVID GERRARD A co-production with the Australian Broadcasting Commission

: Charles Dickens

A Celebration by Angus Wilson
Charles Dickens , who died 100 years ago, was known in his own lifetime as The Great Inimitable. Never in the history of literature has a writer Deen so loved and respected during his lifetime-and after. The author of Pick-wick Papers, Oliver Twist and David Copperfield was a I person of many contradictions. Im-Imensely high-spirited and energetic, he was also pessimistic about the state of Victorian society and could be hypocritical in his dealings with his fellow men.
In his celebration of Dickens, Angus Wilson , himself a distinguished novelist and lecturer, shows how the different threads in his life and character were reflected and resolved in his novels.

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.
