: Born 1900

The third in a series of six
Elisabeth Bergner
Strange, shy, childlike, demonic, a soul aflame, a magic creature ... some of the descriptions that have been given to Elisabeth Bergner.
Born in Vienna, she was already acclaimed as a great actress on the Continent in the 20s. She took English audiences by storm in 1933 in the stage production of Escape Me Never and then by a magical performance in James Barrie 's last, ill-fated play The Boy David. Ever since then, her appearances on stage, film and television have been very special occasions for vast numbers of people who respond to her unique talents. She talks to PATRICK GARLAND about highlights in her career and some great influences in her life.

: The Philpott File

Trevor Philpott reports on The Making of a Policeman: Life at the Top
The days when a chief constable was just a figurehead are over. Now he may control 5,000 men and the spending of £20,000,000 a year. He may have to deal with violent demonstrations, industrial strife, hijackings and bombings - situations loaded with social and political dynamite. When the chips are down it is not usually a general or a minister but a policeman who is in charge.
All our senior policemen began on the beat. How are they prepared for such responsibilities? And what is life like at the top?

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.
