Four films about the world of journalism in different countries. The New Statesman
From the 1930s to the 1950s the New Statesman was called 'the conscience of the Left' - to A. P. Herbert it was ' this bitious weekly', to its devotees a weekly Bible.
Founded by middle-class socialists in 1913, the New Statesman became, under Kingsley Martin editor from 1931-1961, probably the most influential publication in British politics. Now, it is a radical journal in search of a role. Among those taking part
Malcolm Muggeridge , Paul Johnson Anthony Sampson
Richard Hoggart , V. S. Pritchett Professor Norman MacKenzie and the present editor, Anthony Howard

An Accident of Class and Sex by MAGGIE WADEY
' An Englishman thinks automatically in terms of class. It's an occupational hazard. He can no more control it than he can lick his own tongue.'
... People and tensions have been harnessed with a sense of place and time. No small gift and one well served by the acting. (THE LISTENER) ... Truth as much in the writing as in the well tuned and judged acting.

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.

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