: The Man Who Meant Well: 1

by Gerard Walschap
A new eight-part serial of life in Flanders in the 20s and 30s.
Belgium between the two wars and two contrasting farm families, one rich, the other poor, is the setting for a drama of passion and incident by an author new to the English-speaking world.
Thys Glorieus, from hardworking but poor country stock, really does mean well, and his belief in justice is always unshaken, even when it is uncomfortable for him, or others. This distinguished production introduces to English viewers and readers a novel that has been compared to the best of Thomas Hardy and D.H. Lawrence.
Hugo Metsers as Thys Glorieus with the English voice of Peter Marrinker and including Kate Binchy, Angela Pleasence
A co-production by AVRO (Holland) and BRT (Belgium).

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.
