: The Mossbach Collection

A dramatic incident by Stefan Zweig.
Adapted by Jon Manchip White.

Herr Mossbach has been a collector of prints all his life. "For fifty years or more", he says, "I went without beer, wine, tobacco, little outings, visits to the theatre, books. I've skimped and saved. All for the collection". It is to see it, perhaps even to buy from it, that Herr Reinhardt, the Berlin dealer, has come to Mossbach's home. It is years since Mossbach has added to his collection, but though he is old now, and blind, it is a source of unending pleasure to him. The dealer looks forward to seeing it too. Why, he wonders, is the dignified Frau Mossbach so hesitant in arranging for him to do so?

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.
