: ' WAR AND PEACE'

by Leo Tolstoy
2—' Napoleon invades Russia, and Prince Andrew loses his home
'
A serial reading by Eric Gillett
The uneasy peace of Tilsit, between Napoleon and Russia, has come to an end. Napoleon is engaged in a trade war with England, and is trying to -compel the Russians to squeeze British goods out of the Russian market. After months of friction and growing crisis, with Russia always refusing to negotiate or yield an inch, and always ending by yielding and offering to negotiate again, Napoleon's troops crossed the River Niemen on June 13, 1812.

: Children at School: 5: Are Scholarships Value for Money?

W.E. Williams
This evening W.E. Williams, who is looking after this Discussion Group series, will have with him in the studio the mother of a rather-above-the-average-schoolchild. The pair of them will discuss the whole problem of the 'bright' child, and try to decide whether or not the advantages of the university scholarship outweigh such considerations as financial difficulty, the mental worry of the scholar, and his prospects when he leaves the university.

: A PASSENGER TO BALI

From Ellis St. Joseph's short story
Adapted for broadcasting by David Golden
Characters
Other voices include a Narrator and members of the Roundabout crew played by John Mortimer ,
Harry Douglas , William Ashley
The action takes place on the Roundabout, a small tramp steamer, at sea and at various ports of call
Time, Today Play produced by Barbara Burnham The growing interest in transatlantic radio shows has accounted for a fair number of these being broadcast during recent months. Most of them have a flavour different from their English counterparts, and A Passenger to Bali is no exception to this rule. The play is one of the group that Val Gielgud brought back from America last year, and was broadcast in the States by the Columbia Broadcasting Company.
The play presents an unusual character in the person of the huge man who, claiming to be a Dutch missionary, boards the little British steamer Roundabout at Shanghai. He soon behaves strangely, and the story moves to as dramatic a climax as any listener could wish for.

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.
