: A Last Eccentric

The Church of England used to enfold a great cloud of eccentrics.
('anon Eric James recalls how he conducted a Cambridge don, The Rev F. A. Simpson of Trinity College, to preach at the consecration of a bishop. Twenty-five years ago the very fact that Simpson was to preach on such an occasion was the talk of the university.

: The Grand Inquisitor

from The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky, translated by David MacArshack with Leo McKern as the Grand Inquisitor.
In 16th-century Seville, the day after the burning of 100 heretics, a man appears inconspicuously and is immediately recognised by the crowds. He blesses them, and the sick are healed even as they touch his garments. He is arrested, and the old Grand Inquisitor comes to interrogate him in the prison cell.
"We have corrected your great work, and have based it on miracle, mystery and authority.
I shall burn you because you have come to meddle with us, for if anyone has ever deserved our fire, it is you."

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.
