: 'WAR AND PEACE'

by Leo Tolstoy
1, ' Introducing Pierre and Prince
Andrew'
A serial reading by Eric Gillett
Tolstoy's ' War and Peace ' (written in 1863-9) is not only one of the longest novels in existence but, by general consent, one of the greatest. The action covers fifteen years, from 1805 to 1820 ; the scene is the Russia of the Napoleonic Wars. The main characters belong to three or four families of the nobility, but the multitude of subsidiary characters-ranging from the Tsar and Napoleon himself to humble peasants and simple soldiers-are also living individuals, drawn ' in the round'. Their private lives are set against the tremendous background of the French war and the book contains some of the most memorable war scenes in the whole of fiction.

In answer to many listeners' requests for simple talks about foreign affairs, a short series is to be given, of which this afternoon's is the first. Harold Stannard , an outstanding authority on foreign affairs, is going to explain the position of Poland, a country created by the peace treaties and post-war history.

Sir Walford Davies ,.
Master of the King's Musick
Once again Sir Walford Davies gives the opening talk to introduce the two speakers and their subjects. In the first half of the series (January 9 to February 13) Francis Toye has chosen ' The Enjoyment of Music ' as his theme, believing that it is what one likes in music rather than what one dislikes that matters. In the second half of the series (February 27 to April 3) Thalben-Ball, organist of The Temple, will talk about the organ-what it can and cannot do.

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.
