: The Human Predicament

' It's going to take me the rest of my life.'
Richard Hughes knew that he was taking on a mammoth task when he started writing the trilogy which was to examine the events leading up to the Second World War and the War itself.
In fact he only lived long enough to write two complete volumes The Fox in the Attic, and The Wooden Shepherdess, but there are 12 unpublished chapters of the third volume and the people who were close to him have some idea of the direction the book was taking.
Paul Scofield reads extracts from these 12 chapters and Michael Bake well discusses the various clues as to what would . have happened in the third, and Dossiblv final, volume of The Human Predicament. Producer
JANE MORGAN followed by an interlude

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.
