: Omnibus: Joseph Conrad

and the story of Amy Foster and Yanko Goorall with Patrick Stewart , Sandor Eles Hazel Clyne and Peter Barkworth The year is 1901: a boy is washed up on the coast of Kent; no one understands his language; hardly anyone takes pity on him, except a serving girl called Amy Foster. The beginning of one of the lesser-known stories of Joseph Conrad , the Polish seaman who came to England with hardly a word of English and in 20 years was one of the foremost writers in the language. Conrad died in 1924, and this film explores his life and ideas, through the story of Amy Foster and an imagined conversation with its author.

: At the End of the Day

Rt Hon Harold Macmillan in conversation with ROBERT MCKENZIE
The first of two programmes in which HAROLD MACMILLAN talks about the events of 1961-1963, his last years as Prime Minister.
He faced many problems: the Common Market negotiation; economic difficulties and political unpopularity; threats from Khrushchev to Berlin and Cuba; the Profumo case; and finally his own sudden illness and resignation.
This week he describes the background to de Gaulle's veto; his 1962 Cabinet changes which came to be known as ' the night of the long knives'; and the Cuba crisis when a third world war seemed imminent.

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.
