: Armando lannucci in Milton's Heaven and Hell

Milton is often considered too difficult and obscure for today's reader, but to lannucci
Paradise Lost is a thrilling work of creative genius that we ignore at our peril. Tonight's film in the BBC Poetry Season sees the writer and performer journey through both Milton's life and his epic poem, taking in everything from good and evil to human freedom and the existence of God, and offering his own passionate and illuminating response to the work. Along the way he talks to schoolchildren, politicians and former prisoners to build up a picture of what Milton was like, and why his art took the form it did. Director/Producer Zoe Silver bbc.co.uk/poetryseason More from the Poetry Season tomorrow with Michael Wood on Beowulf 9pm, BBC4. and My Life in Verse: Sheila Hancock on Friday 9pm, BBC2 The Inside Story: page 88

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.
