: The Marquis of Keith

A tragicomedy by FRANK WEDEKIND translated from the German by ANTHONY VIVIS with Alan Howard and Robert Eddison
Frank Wedekind (1864-1918) is being increasingly recognised as one of the creators of modern drama and a powerful influence on playwrights like Brecht. Frisch and Durrenmatt. The Marquis of Keith, which dates from 1899, is one of his most important plays in which Wedekind confronts two basic character types: a Don Quixote of immorality and a Don Quixote of decency.
Other parts: KATHERINE PARR and STEPHANIE TURNER
Producer MARTIN ESSLIN
(Alan Howard is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Co)

: Drugs and the Social Package

by Griffith Edwards of the Addiction Research Unit at the Institute of Psychiatry
Two lectures to be followed by a discussion
1: Which Drug for Which Society!
From coffee to cannabis there are few mind-acting substances which have not been accepted by some societies, proscribed by others. If the history of societies' attitudes to drug use shows neither consistency nor reason, Dr Edwards asks, is there more sign of either in our own current responses?
'The "drug problem" is not just about drugs, or about individuals who take drugs, but about societies.'
(A radio version of the Edwin Stevens Lecture for the Laity given at the Royal Society of Medicine in May 1971)

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.
