: The Old Curiosity Shop: 1

by Charles Dickens, dramatised in nine parts by William Trevor
starring
Little Nell is one of Dickens's most famous characters. Equally memorable is the odious misshapen money-lender Quilp, who harries Nell's old grandfather and plans to marry Nell when she is old enough. The tale of the desperate attempts of the luckless pair to escape Quilp's evil clutches is as exciting and moving as any that Dickens ever told.

The dying become like little children: dependent, vulnerable, in need of loving security. Too often nurses treat their terminal cases as failures, and isolate them in the hour of their need.

Joseph's Hospice, Hackney, where a very different approach to dying:
'It's not so much that you lose anything here, but bit by bit you have to give things back. You give back your sight. You give back your hearing. You give back your friends. Then one day you finish by giving back yourself.' Producer PETERBARBER

Six films about the cinema and public opinion in the 1930s.

Unlike the newsreels, whose problem was to strike a balance between entertainment and political purpose, the documentary films of the 1930s were concerned to balance the art of film for its own sake with a social purpose.

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.
