(6) A serial reading from Herman Melville's ' Moby Dick ' by Geoffrey Tandy
The Pequod, now in the neighbourhood of Formosa, has to look to the oil barrels stowed in the hold because they are leaking. Queequeg contracts a fever from working down there in the slime, and, thinking he will not survive, has himself measured for a coffin, which is made by the ship's carpenter. He tries it out to make sure it will be comfortable, and equips it with biscuits and water.

World History
' Romans and Barbarians '
T. W. H. HOLLAND
Some 15,000 years ago, when the might of Rome had faded under its weak Emperor Theodosius, the Huns, under their King, Attila, ravaged the boundaries of the Empire and even threatened to destroy Rome itself. This afternoon listeners will hear how ambassadors from Rome were received by King Attila in the wooden hut which did him duty for a palace. This story of how the Roman Emperor strove to kill his enemy by bribing his personal servant to do the deed, is one of the most famous in ancient history.

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.
