: A Curtain Call for Moliere

A romantic serial in six parts 4: The ' Tartuffe ' Affair
King Louis XIV, exasperated by the clergy's opposition to his love affair with Mademoiselle de la Valliere, decides to strike a blow against hypocrisy by ordering that Moliere's new play Tartuffe, a terrible portrayal of a religious hypocrite, shall be performed before the Court at Versailles. The scandal it causes and the violent outcry by the mysterious ' Brotherhood of the Holy Sacrament' induce the King to abandon Moliere and ban the play. But Moliere's enemies are not satisfied. They demand that he shall be burned at the stake.

: Hospital

The eighth in a series of nine documentary films about the Bolton Area Health Authority, Two Nurses
Sister Bleakley works in the ophthalmic ward caring for patients with eye ailments. She is a conscientious nurse and her rewards are correspondingly great. She can rejoice with the old lady who can look out again over the town at all the familiar landmarks now that her sight has been restored. And she can share the joy of a young girl whose severe squint has been corrected by surgery.
While Sister Bleakley plies her skills, another nurse faces a dismissal hearing. With her union officer in attendance she must answer charges of absenteeism. The process closely resembles a trial. After the prosecution, the defence and witnesses have been heard, three adjudicators retire to consider their verdict. AH this was recorded behind closed doors as it happened.

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.
