: Lady Chatterley

When D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover" was finally published in the UK in 1960, over 30 years after completion, it sparked off the century's most celebrated obscenity trial. A further 30 years later, film-maker Ken Russell has adapted Lawrence's three versions of the story into a four-part screenplay. Russell, whose previous work includes adaptations of Lawrence's "Women in Love" and "The Rainbow", says: "We have changed certain nuances, but generally the film remains very faithful to his intentions."
Starring Joely Richardson, Sean Bean.
Stifled by a sexless marriage and exhausted by caring for her husband, paralysed from the waist down, Lady Chatterley takes to walking in the extensive grounds of the family estate. There she meets Mellors, the handsome gamekeeper, and is shaken by the force of her desire.
Screenplay by Michael Haggiag and Ken Russell

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.
