: R.U.R.

Karel Capek's famous play, first broadcast in 1927 and again in 1930, is revived tonight for the second time under the direction of its original radio producer. The scene is 'a remote island' and the period 1950-60. The play envisages a time when humanity has evolved the perfect mechanical man - robot. The robots do the work of their human inventors so well that they completely usurp them: a time comes when there is not a single human being left, on Earth. Of tonight's cast six - Edgar Norfolk, Harcourt Williams, Frank Cochrane, Clare Harris, Gwendolen Evans, and Herbert Lugg - are playing the parts they created in Basil Dean's original London production of the play at the St. James's Theatre in 1923. (An article on the Author of 'R.U.R.' appears on page 28)

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.

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.
