: Sunday Feature: The Romantic Road

Ajourney through the literatures of Europe. 9: Italy. Julian Evans arrives in Italy. But ratherthan looking in Florence, Venice,
Milan or Rome for an iconic figure in Italy's narrative tradition, his search leads him to the border city of Trieste, once the home of Italo Svevo. And from conversations with today's writers it seems that, like Svevo, the dominance of the country's Renaissance and Classical traditions has encouraged them to look away from Italy's cultural heartlands fortheir literary inspiration.


Unknown: Italo Svevo.

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
