Narrator/script, music and settings:
A serial in eight parts adapted for television by Alice de Grey from the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
A play in five parts by Bernard Shaw.
The action takes place in the study of a house overlooking Hampstead Heath in the first years after the 1914-18 war.
In Part 1 Shaw showed how, to avoid the awful loneliness of eternity, Adam decided to live for a thousand years. A few centuries later there were many more people in the world, but Cain in slaying his brother Abel had discovered murder and Eve detected, sorrowfully, that death was gaining on life. She stated the dilemma which is at the root of Back to Methuselah: "Already most of our grandchildren die before they have sense enough to know how to live". Part 2 shows how that dilemma begins to be resolved, for the Brothers Barnabas are convinced that now "Life is too short for men to take it seriously".
Dr. Conrad Barnabas:
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.
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.
