Mr. DESMOND MACCARTHY : Life Stories of Ordinary Men-Dickens'
The fact that 4,239 new novels were published in 1931 should suffice to draw listeners to Mr. MacCarthy for reintroduction to master-pieces that have stood the test of time, and for guidance in the wilderness of modern writing. ' David Copperfiel (l,' Dickens' own favourite and most popular novel, serves as the peg for consideration of the cradlo to grave realism ' that is so largely responsible for the spate.

: 'A Wonderful Week-end'

(See, top of page)
A romantic comedy with music, with a straightforward plot of the 'dream come true ' variety. The wonderful week-end of the heroine is the prelude to what is presumably a wonderful wedding and married life, but one never knows in romantic comedy. What is certain is light-hearted entertainment, from a witty book and score to match by a composer new to the B.B.C. staff, but not to programmes. Curtain !

: 'The Other Room'

Taken from a short story by DON MARQUIS
An intense little thriller, freely adapted from an Amoriean short story by the producer, built round the nervous crisis of a nerve specialist.
In ' the other room,' ingeniously suggested by an atmospheric production device, he hears and sees his ' other self,' giving voice to the subterranean meanness and selfishness of his nature. Ho protests passionately, but the vision persists and insanity threatens. Nervous natures advised to try the Regional programme.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
