: * The Kingship of Charles II

Straddling the Age of Reformation and the Age of Reason, Charles 11 practised the royal touch and patronised the Royal Society. Three hundred years after his death, Dr John Morrill , Fellow of Selwyn College, Cambridge, reflects on such apparent contradictions and argues that beneath a surface disguise, and behind the lazy pragmatism which marked his day-to-day governing, Charles remained recognisably his father's son.

: The Reluctant Virtuoso

Oscar Shumsky is one of the true greats of the 20th century, and I have a very sincere regret that my own country has not officially recognised that. (LEONARD ROSE) When Oscar Shumsky was a child, Fritz Kreisler predicted that he would be one of the greatest violinists of his generation. That he didn't make an international career as a soloist is a mystery his colleagues find hard to explain. David Wheeler presents a documentary profile of the 67-year-old virtuoso. With contributions from
EUGENE DRUCKER , RODNEY FRIEND, JOSEF GINGOLD , MILTON KATIMS , LEONARD ROSE, EARL WILD and OSCAR SHUMSKY himself. Producer CATHY WEARING

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.
