: Gunter Grass: Not Only a Writer

The reputation of Gunter Grass as poet, playwright and novelist reaches far beyond his native Germany. The Tin Drum, his first novel, sold 11 million copies and was translated into 16 languages. But recently he has sacrificed several months each year to drum-up support for Willy Brandt, and has become as well known in his political activities as for his writing.
In this film made during his strenuous election campaigning at the end of last year, Grass talks about his life and his preoccupations, from childhood in Danzig under the Nazis, to international fame today, and explains why he cares so much about the future of democracy in Germany.


Subject: Gunter Grass
Readings: Tony Church
Commentary: Alan Dobie
Editor: Anna Benson Gyles
Writer/Producer: Lorna Pegram

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.
