: Pride and Prejudice: Part 2

by Jane Austen.
Adapted for television in six weekly instalments by Cedric Wallis.
[Starring] Alan Badel with Marian Spencer, William Squire, Jane Downs, Hugh Sinclair
Mr. Charles Bingley, the new tenant of Netherfield Park, Hertfordshire, is much sought after by the neighbouring families of marriageable daughters. Jane, the eldest of the four daughters of Mr. Bennet and Mrs. Bennet, of Longbourne, attracts his chief attention at the Assembly Hall. His arrogant friend, Mr. Darcy, however, in spite of an even more handsome appearance, and an even larger fortune, creates an unfavourable impression, especially on Miss Elizabeth Bennet, a young lady of considerable spirit.

: Sea and Ships: Tankers

Alan Villiers discusses Tankers with Captain Kenneth Morris.
Today about one quarter of the world's merchant shipping tonnage consists of tankers, many of them between 20,000 and 45,000 tons capacity, costing more than £2,000,000 each.
Very recently, a few tankers of more than 100,000 tons capacity have been ordered-a far cry from 1861, when the first cargo of oil was carried across the Atlantic in barrels by a 224-ton brig. Tonight Alan Villiers and Captain Morris, who commands a tanker, discuss the extraordinary history and development of these ships, and some of the hazards they face in war and peace.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
