: Forty Minutes

Bertie and the Bomb
Written and narrated by Michael Dean
His intimates (of whom there were many, especially women) called him
Bertie. Society knew him as Lord Russell, the outrageously brilliant scion of a family born to rule. To scholars he was one of the greatest of English philosophers and mathematicians. Around the world, where-ever books were read, he was the eloquent apostle of social and sexual reform. But it was in the last years of a long and turbulent life that Bertrand Russell became a towering figure on the world stage, as the passionate advocate of nuclear disarmament, as the white-haired prophet who warned of man's imminent peril.
At a time when CND is rampant again after a decade of near silence, MICHAEL DEAN looks at the last fascinating chapter of a great Englishman s life. Archive film, interviews with friends and contemporaries and Russell's memorable testament, recorded for posterity in his vigorous old age, combine in this portrait of a genius for passion, lucidity and mischief.

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.
