: Florence Nightingale

Behind one of Britain's greatest heroines lies an unexpected story. Laura Fraser, Michael Pennington and Roy Hudd star in this drama based largely on Florence Nightingale's own words. She became famous for her work among the wounded soldiers of the Crimea - yet just who was this Lady with the Lamp and what was it that drove her on?

(Simulcast in HD on the BBC HD channel)
Ode to a Nightingale: page 12

Drama: Florence Nightingale 7.00pm BBC1
Laura Fraser rises above a lumpen script as spirited young Florence, a tough cookie who returns from the Crimean War furious at the ineptitude of Britain's military bosses.
Having seen men die in so-called hospitals foul with disease, she demands to be made head of a Royal Commission looking into the conduct of the war. Sadly, it backfires, leaving her sick, defeated and suffering from a crisis of faith (and much is made of Florence's guiding belief in God).
But this isn't a revisionist hatchet job. It's a solidly instructive drama that reminded me of something BBC Schools might have shown in the 1970s, full of clunky dialogue ("You played the piano... something new by Mr Chopin") and men with stuck-on mutton whiskers. But, though it has an early-evening slot, there are gruesome bits that might upset tinies. (Alison Graham)

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.
