: Whicker's World: A Handful of Horrors

Alan Whicker braves A Handful of Horrors
"I don't like my monsters to have Oedipus complexes..."

Many people enjoy being scared - will pay for the pleasure of being frightened out of their lives. Tellers of ghost stories have profited from this shadowed side of our natures for centuries; today a considerable industry satisfies the needs of the cult followers of Horror magazines and Horror films - even Horror ballet.
Alan Whicker braves that Unspeakable Something in cellar and grave-yard in an attempt to find out why we like to be frightened, and talks to those who do the frightening.

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.
