: 'The Man Who Could Work Miracles'

LONG BEFORE H. G. Wells became famous as a sociologist, he was famous as a short-story writer at a time when the art of the short story had reached its peak in English literature. His fertility and exuberant imagination were taking their preliminary canter in this difficult but delightful branch of writing.
' The Man Who Could Work Miracles ' is, perhaps, a supreme example of the Wells who could visualise in the same focus the whole stirring universe and the commonplace trivialities and humour of lower middle-class life. It was recently selected by the author himself as being his best short story.
It was the originality of H. G. Wells to take as his subject a perfectly ordinary man in perfectly ordinary surroundings and to give to him some impossible attribute-in this case the power to work miracles-and it was his genius to work out convincingly what would follow to its logical conclusion. Readers will recall' The Invisible Man '. In the same way he would assume the impossible, or at least highly improbable, and write a story of genius like ' The Food of the Gods '.
The idea of adapting a short story for the microphone, and the problems that arose from doing it, are discussed in an article by the adaptor and producer in the ' Background to the Broadcast' on page 659.

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.

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