: News Extra Richard Dimbleby - The Man and Myth

When RICHARD DIMBLEBY died ten years ago he was Britain's foremost broadcaster. To many he was an institution that embodied establishment values and received opinion. In a conversation with ROGER CLARK Jonathan Dimbleby , whose controversial biography has just been published, talks about the man and the myth.
He examines the dispute between RICHARD DIMBLEBY and the BBC that ended with his resignation in 1945, the rivalries and jealousies that clouded his career and the attempts to ' oust ' him from Panorama. JONATHAN DIMBLEBY also names some of the people inside and outside the BBC who tried to do him down

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.
