: A Second Volume

The noble, silent men, scattered here and there, each in his department; silently thinking, silently working; whom no Morning Newspaper makes mention of They are the salt of the earth. A country that has few or none of these is in a bad way.
The Reminiscences is one of the more immediate and accessible of the writings of Thomas Carlyle. a work of intense personal and professional self-analysis, which was first prompted by the death in 1832 of Carlyle's much-respected father. In this illustrated talk, to mark this year's Carlyle Centenary, Dr Ian Campbell of the University of Edinburgh examines some of the tensions that were provoked in Carlyle's life and work by the memory of his father, and by the severe contrast between the simple family home in Ecclefechan and the brilliant London world of the ' Sage of Chelsea '.

: Lippmann Reassessed

' Zip! Walter Lippmann wasn't brilliant today' - sang a loquacious stripper in Rodgers and Hart's 1940 musical Pal Joey, assuming the audience would recognise the name of America's most celebrated political columnist and laugh at her daring to find him less than inspired. But since his death in 1974 this towering figure - presidential confidant, public philosopher, journalist extraordinary - has been plummeting towards oblivion, to be retrieved by Ronald Steel in his biography Waiter Lippmann and the American Century, which Esmond Wright, Director of the Institute of United States Studies at London University, examines in this talk.

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.
