: Storm Cloud

The last years of John Ruskla at Brantwood
Written and narrated by Francis Watson with 1 All I look for is light and peace. Those - unless by some strange chance of evil - are sure to me.' But in the peaceful home that he had found for himself by Coniston Water, John Ruskin went mad.
This programme is the story of a great mind in collapse, dramatised with a wealth of direct testimony that includes some of the astonishing diary-record, only recently published, made by Ruskin up to the critical moment of his first serious attack.
With the voices of JULIET COOKE , DAVID MAHLOWE and PAUL WEBSTER Producer HERBERT SMITH (Manchester)

by Maurice Cranston , Professor of Political Science at the London School of Economics. The idea of privacy is familiar; we are rightly concerned if it is threatened. But to defend it we must be sure we understand it. And here there are surprises.

: John Gibson

1925-1974
The early death of the director John Gibson in May this year removed from the radio and television scene one of its most distinguished talents. Among the radio productions for which he would wish to be remembered is The Open Boat. first broadcast in 1964. The adapter of the story, author IAN RODGER. introduces the play with a short tribute to its producer.
10.5 The Open Boat
The short story by STEPHEN CRANE , freely adapted for radio by IAN RODGER
After the success of The Red Badge of Courage, Stephen Crane spent most of his remaining life as a war correspondent. At the end of 1896 he was sent to Florida on board The Commodore to cover a filibustering expedition to Cuba, and on New Year's Day the ship sank. The Open Boat is Stephen Crane 's re-creation of his 50-hour struggle for life in the open sea.

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.
