: The Goldfish

or My Dad's a Great Man English premiere of JEAN ANOUILH 'S play
Translated by LUCIENNE HILL Adapted for stereo by RAYMOND RAIKES with Alec McCowen ,
John Shrapnel and Prunella Scales
Anouilh himself once described this play as ' an odd, outlandish piece'; and in a programme note, written in 1970, he warns his audience that whereas some of the action takes place in Brittany near the seaside on 14 July 1960 precisely, certain scenes occur only in the author's imagination where Time does not exist. He once thought of calling this play ' Les Mis£rables ' but not quite in the Victor Hugo sense - may we translate it on this occasion as ' The Proletariat '?

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.
