: Reputations

Kenneth Tynan (1927-80)
KENNETH PEACOCK TYNAN was stage-struck all his life and loved to shock. He was the illegitimate son of a six-times mayor of Warrington, and in the immediate post-war years at Oxford, he was a huge celebrity - a pleasure-seeking dandy, actor, director and the biggest attraction in Union debates. His ten years at The Observer established him as the wittiest and most influential drama critic in post-war Britain. He continued to exert his influence at the National
Theatre when Sir Laurence Olivier invited him to join as Literary Manager.
Perhaps best known for devising the nude erotic revue Oh! Calcutta!, he had always fought against censorship and was at the centre of the controversy over Hochhuth's Soldiers.
Anthony Howard presents this re-assessment. Among the contributors are Tynan's two wives Elaine Dundy and Kathleen Tynan Sir Ralph Richardson
John Osborne , Tom Stoppard
Jonathan Miller
Sir Harold Hobson Gore Vidal

: Delia Smith's One is Fun!

Delia creates three more recipes. This week's dishes will tempt the lone vegetarian, but are fun for anyone. The mighty brown lentil gets tossed around in a salad, finds itself in a moussaka, and sits nicely alongside tagliatelle in three cheeses.

A film about Joe Brown, shopkeeper, plumber, and one of the world's greatest rock climbers, who, in an era of millionaire sportsmen, is still having to mend roofs to raise the cash for his holidays, which could be in Scotland or the Himalayas, the Amazon jungle or Kenya.

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.
