: When I Get to Heaven

The first of six programmes. Bishop Richard Holloway talks to the celebrated Irish writer, Edna O'Brien , about her hopes of heaven.
Is there, for her, such a place? What will it be like, and whom does she hope to meet there?
She was born into a Roman Catholic family in a small town in the west of Ireland: her early life was dominated by the crucified Christ, whose 'gruesome passion' impinged on every word, every thought and every deed. Life was 'fervid, enclosed and catastrophic'. In this rare interview
Edna O'Brien takes us through her personal journey from claustrophobic small-town Ireland to life as an internationally acclaimed writer. Camera

: Late Great Britons

'Sir Robert Walpole. ... brought the system of venality and corruption to a more alarming excess than had ever been known previous to his times.' While not entirely refuting this popular view, Dr Jeremy Black argues that Walpole merely exemplified the prevailing values of his age. Moreover, he introduced much needed stability in a period of religious, political and dynastic upheaval. Producer DAVID HERMAN

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.
