: THE ENGLISH REVOLUTION

Nine programmes about government. society, and ideas in early Stuart England
3: Merchants and Society
The Merchants of the early seventeenth century formed a single class but they were often divided among themselves. London merchants against provincial, large-scale capitalists against small, and wholesalers against middle-men.
BARRY SUPPLE
Professor of Economic and Social History in the University of Sussex shows how these divisions led to clashes of interest, and prevented the merchants speaking with a single voice on the issues leading to civil war.
With readings from contemporary sources by John GLEN and GARY WATSON
Produced by Adrian Johnson
Second broadcast

: TWO SIXTEENTH. CENTURY HISTORIANS

2: Camden by Hugh TREVOR-ROPER
Regius Professor of Modern History in the University of Oxford
Headmaster of Westminster. Clarenceux King of Arms. William Camden was the most famous English scholar of his day- His Annuls of Queen Elizabeth was written as a result of many different pressures, some of them very unfavourable to scholarly detachment. But ' it is a great work of history. It is independent of all the pressures which created it. It made no concessions' to anyone.' Camden saw the glories of the Elizabethan age not merely in politics but in the total activity of English society.

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.
