Other principal characters:
Music selected from the works of C. P. E. Bach and played by LIONEL SALTER on a contemporary piano at the Colt Clavier Collection. Bethersden
Produced by MARTIN ESSLIN
Ronald Pickup is a National Theatre player
Second broadcast
Danton's Death is the only one of Buchner's plays to be published in his lifetime-he wrote it in 1835 when he was twenty-two. The play is based on authentic documents and some of the speeches are taken verbatim from the records. Yet this is more than a mere history play-it is a poem on sensuality, love, and death. It was so far In advance of its time that it did not get a performance until 1913.

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.
