: THE SORROWS OF IRELAND

by Honor Tracy with Alan Bennett and Patrick Magee
For many years Dick Fothereill , a producer, worked on Irish programmes, faithfully adhering to Policy. At last it proved too much for him and he fell a prey to Melancholia. Now, on medical advice, he has been given leave to express his own ideas; and we find him struggling to do so, ably hampered by Sean Sweeney , an absentee patriot who volunteers to criticise and correct.
Produced by Douglas CLEVERDON Second broadcast

: HEAVEN, HELL AND THE MILKY WAY

by MICHAEL HOSKIN
Lecturer in the History of Science in the University of Cambridge
Thomas Wright of Durham is commonly credited with having first propounded, in 1750. the explanation of the Milky Way as the optical effect of living in a pancake-shaped galaxy. Recent research by Dr. Hoskin reveals that he hit on this idea in a much odder and more interesting way than popular conceptions of scientific progress might lead one to expect. Second broadcast

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.
