: Royal Shakespeare Company in All's Well That Ends Well

by William Shakespeare

Lynn Farleigh as Helena

This play used to be regarded as one of Shakespeare's ' problem' works. But this production by the Royal Shakespeare Company is changing all that. It received extremely good reviews both at Stratford and London's Aldwych Theatre. And when the company took it to Moscow, Helsinki and Paris they received standing ovations. The central character of All's Well That Ends Well is Helena, an orphan at the French Court who Is in love with Bertram, Count of Rousillon. He has no time for her - but Helena is a very determined girl.

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.
