: In the Work

An autobiographical experience
Written and narrated by J.M. Cohen
In the summer of 1947 Mr. Cohen became associated with the 'Work' - a system of cosmological and psychological ideas propounded by P. D. Ouspensky and George Gourdjieff by which small groups of people had been trying to live for thirty years. With affectionate irony Mr. Cohen describes the fourteen years hard labour he served in the prison of their ideas and his fortunate release.
Others taking part: Basil Jones, Michael Kilgarriff, Marne Maitland, and Peter Marinker
Fourth broadcast
The Spiral Path: Thursday at 7.30 p.m.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
