: Drama Now

Bv Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept by ELIZABETH SMART Narrated by Maureen O'Brien
This classic story, first published in 1945, has been abridged for radio bv the author. Described by some as ' a master-piece of poetic prose ', it is about a woman's obsessive love for a married man. Unable to cope with her emotions, her sense of guilt, the endless waiting, she lives in a permanent state of anxiety and disquiet.
'Our seeming detachment grows. I sit back impersonally and say: I see human vanity. Or I feel myself full of gladness because there is gentleness between him and her. But he never passes anywhere near me without every drop of my blood springing to attention.
My mind may reason that the tenseness only registers neutrality, but my heart knows no true neutrality was ever so full of passion.' Directed by CHERRY COOKSOX

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.
