: The Voice of Henry Irving

An investigation by RICHARD BEBB
Seventy years ago this month, Sir Henry Irving , the greatest of Victorian actors, collapsed on the stage of the Theatre Royal, Bradford, to die later that night. His last appearance was in Tennyson's ' Becket ', and tonight you can hear the first broadcast of a newly discovered recording of Irving reciting one of the play's most memorable speeches.
How this and hitherto unknown Irving recordings were discovered and authenticated is in its way as dramatic as the recordings themselves, and the programme describes in detail the amazing coincidences and strokes of luck which led the researchers to the end of their quest.

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.
