World History: 'Marie Antoinette': Mary Richards
'If Frenchmen only knew her worth, and how saintly her troubles have made her, they would love her. But our enemies have spoken badly of her, and tried to change the love that once was felt for her into the most bitter hatred.' So wrote King Louis of France about his Queen, Marie Antoinette.
In this afternoon's broadcast you will hear about the conditions that gave rise to the French Revolution, and how the unhappy royal family of France made its desperate bid for escape. There will be a number of short dramatic scenes. The first is set in a Paris street, where the poor people are heard comparing their lot with that of the rich nobles at court.
The second scene is set in the Palace of Versailles just before the revolutionaries arrive to carry off the royal family to the Tuileries.
The third scene follows Louis, Marie Antoinette, and, their children, as they try to escape in their coach. The escape was all but successful, and had they not been recognised by Drouet at Varennes, the course of French history might have been materially altered.

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.
