: The Book Programme

Introduced by Robert Robinson
Alexander Solzhenitsyn 's new book, Lenin in Zurich, is just published-the second part of what he calls 'the chief artistic design of my life'-a history of revolutionary Russia which began with his book August 1914. solz
HENITSYN talks to ROBERT ROBINSON about Lenin in Zurich in which he says his aim is to reconstitute the historical truth which has been cruelly and violently distorted in Russia. It is a book he has lived with for 40 years. He explains why he thinks Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky always kept their pseudonyms, and how the power of their slogans helped them to succeed. Solzhenitsyn talks, too, about his first awareness that he should be a writer and about his own reading.

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.
