: 'Conversations Out of Time'

' Dr. Johnson Today'
S. C. ROBERTS
Among men of letters, Dr. Johnson was a greater character than any they ever put in their books, with the exception of the diarist,
Boswell. Samuel Johnson was born in 1709, won fame at Oxford for his learning, but had to leave without taking a degree because he was so wretchedly poor. He had to become a hack writer, but even so, was more than once arrested for debt. He was insensible to music, slovenly in dress, had a habit of touching the posts with which the streets of his day were lined. He was physically strong and morally brave. He loved the Church and Tories, tea and late hours, London streets and taverns, and never forgot to tip the waiter. A pension made the last twenty years of his life tolerable, and he became a literary lion of London.
Every year on the anniversary of his death, December 13, 1784, the Johnson Society meet at dinner. - This is usually held at his house, but this year it is to be held at one of the taverns he loved.
Tonight Mr. S. C. Roberts is coming straight from it to take part in an imaginary discussion between Johnson and Boswell, which he has written from the point of view Dr. Johnson might have had if he had been living today.

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.
