: Imperfect Sympathies

A radio mosaic by Aidan Higgins
An impression of Charles Lamb and the ideas and feelings that helped to shape the Intellectual climate of his times. 1775-1834
' A little dark old fellow. One could only distinguish a head, then big shoulders, then a delicate body, and finally two artistically slender legs, which were almost imperceptible. Under his arm was a green umbrella, and over his eyes a very old hat. There was neither health nor strength, and scarcely sufficient reality in those poor spindles, clothed in stockings of Chinese silk, ending in impossible feet, encased in large shoes, which placed flatly on the ground advanced in the manner of a web-footed creature. But one did not notice these singularities. It seemed as if something purely intellectual was before you. Wit, sweetness, melancholy and gaiety gushed in torrents from this extraordinary physiognomy.'
With the voices of CHRISTOPHER BIDMEAD , CAROLE BOYD , ALAN DUDLEY. MALCOLM HAYES , ANNE JAMESON , HAYDN JONES. DENIS MCCARTHY , CLIFFORD NORGATE , HECTOR ROSS , JOHN RYE, JOHN SAMSON , JAMES WATTS and PETER WOODTHORPE

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.
