: Scarlet and Black

Stendhal's classic novel, ambitiously subtitled "a Chronicle of the 19th Century", has been dramatised In three parts by Stephen Lowe.
Stendhal served In the Ministry of War during Napoleon's campaigns, turning to full-time writing after the Emperor's fall. This, his second novel, was published In 1830.
Its contemporary public read the book against the background of the Ideological struggle between the Liberals, holding republican views, and the Ultra-Royalists supporting Charles X.
After his death, Napoleon Bonaparte, the humble soldier who rose through the ranks to become Emperor, remains the inspiration for Julien Sorel, son of a provincial carpenter. The ruthless Sorel is determined to rise In society, but feels that the road to power no longer lies in the army (the "scarlet") but in the church (the "black").

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.
