: Anatomist of Melancholy

Hugh Trevor-Roper , Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford, argues that ROBERT BURTON , author of The Anatomy of Melancholy, who was born 400 years ago today, far from being a quaint eccentric, is not only an important English baroque writer but also a serious Utopian philosopher and medical reformer whose work finds a place in a consistent tradition running from Sir Thomas More to Sir Thomas Browne. followed by an interlude

: Oil Rig

A sound portrait in binaural stereo.
Among the giant, floating drilling barges which have explored the North Sea for oil, Sea Quest has a special place. A veteran of more than ten years' experience, it has been notably successful finding gas and oil in vast quantities.
But what is it really like to live and work in the hazardous conditions of the North Sea? A BBC team lived on board Sea Quest with the latest recording equipment to try to recreate in sounds and voices that experience.
The field recordings were made by Leo Feorid and Lloyd Silverthorne
The technical realisation in binaural sound was by Lloyd Silverthorne
The programme was compiled and directed by Tony Simmons

(For appreciation of the binaural effect this programme should be listened to on stereo headphones)

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
