: Gale is Dead

First shown in the series Man Alive, Gale is Dead seemed to touch a nerve.
The film traces the life of a girl who died as a drug addict at the age of 19. Gale was abandoned by her mother at the age of 6 months, suffered from severe emotional deprivation and proceeded through a series of children's homes and remand homes, her behaviour becoming more and more disturbed. She ended up in Holloway Prison where she was introduced to drugs. Her death, so unnecessary and so tragic, moved viewers deeply. As strong and relevant today as it was when it was shown, the question it poses is - how do you deal with the sensitive, emotionally-disturbed child, who feels she doesn't belong to anyone and whom society seems so ill-equipped to help?

: Hedda Gabler

by HENRIK IBSEN
Translated by MICHAEL MEYER starring Janet Suzman Ian McKellen
Tom Bell , Jane Asher with Brendan Barry and Dorothy Reynolds Hedda Gabler is an outstanding example of BBC Television classic play production - a continuous run of drama that has brought to the viewing public almost every famous English and European classic play over the years. Hedda Gabler is, in addition, probably Henrik Ibsen 's finest and best-known play.

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.
