Andrei returned to Bald Hills to discover that his wife Lisa has just died in childbirth. Pierre challenged Dolohov to a duel and wounded him and later met Bazdayev who introduced him to Freemasonry. The Tsar and Napoleon signed the Tilsit Agreement in order to prevent any further wars between the two countries.
Cast in order of appearance:
9 With the help of the specially trained Russian wolfhounds, the Borzois, for one fine specimen of which Russian aristocrats would exchange two or three whole families of house serfs, the Rostovs get their wolf, and then, after the hunt, Nikolai and Natasha go back to the home of a country relative, an old uncle who plays on his guitar folk tunes to which Natasha dances beautifully.
Where, how and when could this young countess who had had a French emigrie for a governess, have imbibed from the Russian air she breathed the spirit of that dance? " asks Tolstoy AN EXTRACT FROM 'WAR AND PEACE,' A RADIO TIMES SPECIAL, 25p post paid, available from [address removed]

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
