: A Labour of Love

Richard Jefferies, His Life and Worfc by Edward Thomas , first published in 1909, has been described by Q. D. Leavis as aclassic of critical biography.' It has just been reprinted to mark the centenary of Thomas's birth, and P. J. Kavanagh argues that it tells as much about Edward Thomas the poet, as it does about his subject.

: Siegfried Sassoon: Poet's Pilgrimage

1886-1967 with Hugh Burden as Siegfried Sassoon
Hugh Dickson as The Reader
' My real biography is my poetry:
Last thing at night, in solitude serene,
I am unpossessed of all that I have been.
It is as though I were about to go
Some journeying far beyond what now I know.'
(SIEGFRIED SASSOON)
' Siegfried Sassoon has always seemed to me a parable of 20th-century man. To most of those acquainted with his name he is essentially the Fox-hunting man, the Infantry officer and poet of the First World War. Few knew him for what he was beneath outward appearances - prophet, sage, pilgrim, a Mr Valiant for Truth going to the Celestial City ':
Dame Felicitas Corrigan , OSB, a close friend of Sassoon during his later years, who presents the programme.

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.
