: Betjeman and Me - Griff Rhys Jones

2/3. Joanna Lumley , Barry Humphries , Stephen Fry , John Mortimer , John Sergeant , Craig Brown and Craig Raine join Griff Rhys Jones. Since his death in 1983, Betjeman has remained one of Britain's most popular poets. His Collected Poems has sold over two million copies, and the enduring themes of love, death, faith, and pretty girls have given his work widespread appeal. He's the Bertie Wooster of light verse, but this sometimes means that his work isn't taken too seriously. Griff re-appraises the man and his work, with critics, fans and admirers.
Director James Runcie ; Executive producer Charles Brand
Barry Humphries is also in Turn Back Time on Wednesday at 10pm The September issue of Homes & Antiques has a feature on Betjeman's daughter, Candida Lycett Green. Out now, priced E3.30 Poetic justice, plus collected poems offer: page 22

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.
