He is something of a rarity - a science fiction writer with a literary reputation. The first part of tonight's programme is a conversation between ADRIAN MIT CHELL, the poet, and VONNEGUT, filmed on his last visit to Britain.
Part 2 is a 75-minute film based on Vonnegut's work called Between Time and Timbuktu. It was written specially by him for National Educational Television, the American network.
Stoney Stevenson is an astronaut who is launched from Cape Ken nedy and sent into a ' time warp.' and In part 3 Vonnegut talks about his new book, about other writers and about the influence he is supposed to wield over the American young.

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.
