A Good Laugh is the Best Pesticide
Vladimir Nabokov, celebrated author of Lolita, launches some characteristic barbs in a comic interview filmed on the shores of Lake Geneva at Montreux.
King, Queen, Knave, his latest novel to be published in England, came out last Thursday.

The Magic Apple Tree
A film about Samuel Palmer
The painter Samuel Palmer died in 1881 in a room whose windows were painted completely white to exclude the world he despised. Twenty years later his son destroyed the bulk of his work: Palmer was a forgotten Victorian artist. Yet soon his early work had become a prime influence on British Romantic painting.
This autumn several new books set out to place Palmer firmly among the great artists of the nineteenth century and to show how he anticipated Monet, Van Gogh, Paul Klee, and even The Yellow Submarine.
Written and directed by Robert Kitts

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
