: Waiting for the New Wave

Written and presented by Gerard Gould
An observer might marvel at the vitality of French Theatre, and yet be puzzled by the absence of modern French plays. In an attempt to discover the underlying causes for this lack of trust in authors, Gerard Gould sought the views of French directors, arts administrators and playwrights. Among those taking part: directors Antoine Vitez
Bernard Sobel , Daniel Mesguish and Ariane Mnouchkine;
General Administrators of the Comedie Francaise Jean-Pierre Vincent and Jean Le Poulin ; critic Pierre Laville ; and playwrights
Jean-Claude Grumberg Arlette Namiand and Bernard Marie Koltes , and Dr Keith Gore of Worcester College, Oxford.
Readings by PAUL GREGORY

It is not that universities have ever been considered as purely private; they were and are public institutions, the efficiency and good working of which are legitimate objects of public scrutiny.
Elie Kedourie , Professor of Politics at the London School of Economics, reflects on the two or three decades of universities' increasing dependence on government planning and funds.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
