5: The Community and 16-18 Schools and colleges too often look like little closed societies deliberately cutting themselves off from the rest of the community, looking on themselves as a separate meritocracy.

: GRAPHOMANIACS

by Abram Tertz
Paul Daneman as the novelist
Peter Woodthorpe as the poet The story translated from the Russian and dramatised for radio by NICHOLAS BETHELL
This ' fantastic-realistic ' story, one of the five in The Icicle, figured in the trial of its author, Andrey Sinyavsky , sentenced to corrective labour for allowing his allegedly anti-Soviet writings to be pseudonymously published abroad. It was termed autobiographical by the sole defence witness who tried to use it in mitigating evidence: ' Sinyavsky once said to me that it is impossible to draw the line between a writer and a graphomaniac. Evidently his....' At that point the witness was silenced by the judge.

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.
