The literary programme returns for afour-part series with a profile of novelist, artist and poet Mervyn Peake , whose
Gormenghast trilogy of grotesque fantasies set in an imaginary world is widely regarded as a neglected masterpiece.
Born in China in 1911, Peake later lived in an artists' colony on the Channel island of Sark. He suffered intermittent nervous breakdowns - exacerbated by a trip to Belsen as a war artist in 1945 - and, from his forties to his death in 1968, was afflicted by a degenerative brain disease. Contributors include Peake's three children, explorer Sir
Ranulph Fiennes and Quentin Crisp. Narrated by Julian Glover. ProducerVanessa Engle; Executive producer Roger Thompson

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.
