Comic opera in three acts. Music by Charles Lecocq. Libretto by CLAIRVILLE, SIRAUDIN and KONING (sung in French: records)
Set in France during the days of the Directory after the Revolution of 1793, when Paul Barras was head of the government. Lecocq's delightful operetta tells the story of Clairette, a clever and resourceful girl who finds that the man she is being forced to marry against her will turns out to be much more reliable than her original lover, the poet Ange Pitou. He jilts her in favour of a famous actress, Mile Lange. paris OPERA CHORUS and the OPÉRA-COMIQUE ORCHESTRA conducted by JEAN DOUSSARD

: The Golden Pathway Annual

by John Harding and John Burrows

"If I'd had the opportunities in life you've had, Michael, I certainly wouldn't be sitting about six months after leaving university with no job. It makes nonsense of everything. Your generation - you've had it all given you on a plate. You think you can pick and choose like the world owes you a living. When I was your age...."
with John Burrows, John Harding, Mark Wing-Davey, Denise Bryer, Timothy Bateson

The authors, John Harding and John Burrows, together with Mark Wing-Davey, re-create the original stage roles in this comedy about a boy growing up in the period from the end of the first war to the present day. Denise Bryer and Timothy Bateson join them in this production directed by Ian Cotterell.

"A 30-year chronicle of our postwar progress from the euphoria of peace to the brave new meritocracy A triumphal demonstration of what good writing and acting can accomplish." (Irving Wardle, The Times)

The Sound of Edwin Morgan
'The Sound of Poetry is as old as poetry. Patterns of sound within or beftween words, and within or. between sentences or even larger units like stanza or paragraph, were early means of inducing incantatory excitement or emphasis as well as being a part of the mnemonic machinery of oral Poetry.' (EDWIN MORGAN) A' selection of the poems of Edwin Morgan introduced and performed by the poet in a collaboration with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Radiophonic Realisation by PETER HOWELL

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.
