: The Man Outside

A modern Hungarian opera in five movements: music by Sandor Balassa. Libretto by GEZA FODOR based on a play by WOLF-GANG BORCHERT , a German soldier who ' starved. froze and killed ' and died young in 1947. His anti-war views are projected into the character of Beckmann, a soldier returned from the war who feels unbearable guilt and responsibility for his wartime actions. This Hungarian Radio studio recording of 1977 was the opera's first performance.
A dramatisation of the libretto, translated by GYULA GULYAS , precedes each movement.

: D. H. Lawrence - 50 Years Later

' My great religion is a belief in the blood. the flesh, as being wiser than the intellect.'
' The great living experience for every man is his adventure into the woman ... The man embraces in the woman all that is not himself, and from that one resultant ... comes every new action.'
' The whole of life is one long, blind effort at an established polarity with the outer universe, human and non-human; and the whole of modern life is a shrieking failure. It is our own fault.'
Fifty years after Lawrence died, on 2 March 1930. what is the value of his vision for our time?
A discussion between:
Frank Kermode. author of Lawrence in the Modern Masters series Claire Tomalin and Jeff Nuttall
Producer RICHARD KEEN
(Women in Love starls to-morrow on Radio 9.3 pm; and Glenda Jackson reads Daughters of the Vicar in the Woman's Hour serial from Tuesday on Radio 4)

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.
