A new play for radio by Martin Walser translated by MICHAEL GELIOT with and Produced by MARTIN ESSLIN
Second broadcast
Martin Walser , one of the leading writers of the German post-war generation, specialises in sardonic descriptions of the affluent society in present day Germany. But the marital crisis described in this comedy certainly has its parallels elsewhere as well.

: A PAGE FROM BLAKE'S NOTEBOOK

by Robert Gittings
Readers, Denis GOACHER
FRANK DUNCAN
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
Among the sketches, lyrics, and jottings in the so-called Rossetti Note-Book of William Blake are his working drafts for Songs of Experience. One single page contains seven lyrics, including London, The Lily, Nurse's Song, and The Tyger. Following the pattern of his earlier programme, The Writing of The Eve of St. Agnes, Robert Gittings analyses the process of Blake's composition of these great poems.

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.
