: SEARCHING FOR PEACE 1914-1918

A series of six talks
3: The End of Dynastic Diplomacy 1917
by JAMES JOLL
Sub Warden of St. Antony's College, Oxford
In the third of this series James Joll considers the secret negotiation for a separate peace with the Habsburg Empire. The French representative was, paradoxically enough, a claimant to the French throne. Prince Sixtus of Bourbon Parma, a brother-in-law of the last Austrian Emperor. The negotiation completely failed mainly because peace with Austria could only be achieved as part of a general settlement. As James Joll says, ' The war which Austria had started was not hers to stop.' General editor of the series, ROBERT BLAKE of Christ Church, Oxford

: THE LION AND THE JEWEL

by Wole Soyinka
The singers recorded in Nigeria under the supervision of Wole Soyinka Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON
For this delicious comedy of African village life, Wole Soyinka has used verse-rhythms for the dialogue and drums for the mimed dances. It is the story of Sidi. beloved by the Europeanised school teacher. When a full-length photograph of her appears as a two-page spread in a glossy magazine. her status soars far above that of Baroka, the elderly chieftain of Ilujinle, who reflects that it is five full months since last he took a wife.

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.
