: 2nd House

Introduced by Melvyn Bragg
Never give a sucker an even break-the catch-phrase of the great W. C. Fields, comic genius anti-hero, whose splendidly idiosyncratic views on politics, big business, marriage, babies and alcohol are legendary.
For 2nd House, comedian Les Dawson , himself a W. C. Fields devotee, presents a collection of hitherto unpublished letters, speeches and sketches from Fields's ' intended autobiography,' due to be published in April.
The Ragtime King: 75 years ago the Negro composer and pianist Scott Joplin ushered in the ragtime craze to the Maple Leaf Rag. Joshua Rifkin conducts his own orchestral arrangements of Pineapple Rag and The Ragtime Dance; and with choreographer JONATHAN TAYLOR re-creates a ragtime session of 60 years ago.
Impressions of- a New City: 100 years ago a society of anonymous artists shook Paris by setting up their own exhibition in defiance of the establishment.
EDWIN MULLINS looks at the way the Impressionists and contemporary photographers documented the new city of the 19th century, and at the changing reaction of painters and photographers to a changing way of life.
10.35 Grace: a story from Dubliners by JAMES JOYCE adapted by DAVID STOREY directed by PETER GILL
' Mr Kernan came of Protestant stock, and, though he had been converted to the Catholic faith at the time of his marriage, he had not been in the pale of the church for 20 years. He was fond, moreover, of giving sidethrusts at Catholicism....'

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
