: THE BURNING OF NJAL

by Louis MacNeice with John Phillips , Carleton Hobba
Francis de Wolff
Allan McClelland
Originally broadcast in March 1947 in a production by the author, The Burning of Nial is the second of two programmes made by Mr. MacNeice from the Icelandic Rial's Saga. His earlier programme took events to the murder of Njal's friend Gunnar in A.D. 990. In this programme the story is continued through years of hard living and dying to the most famous crime in Icelandic history-the burning of Njal in his homestead by a band of enemies led by the chieftain Flosi-to the vengeance taken by Njal's son-in-law Kari and to the eventual reconciliation of Flosi and Kari in A.D. 1016 which ends the saga.

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.
