: Sunday Feature: Oscar in America

One hundred and twenty-five years ago this month, Oscar Wilde sailed for England after a visit to America that proved seminal toward his development into one of the literary greats. Owen Dudley Edwards recounts how a trip to promote a comic opera turned into a year-long tour that educated America not only about aesthetic ideas, but also about Wilde himself. Aided in the promotion of his image by a devoted press, Wilde gave 140 lectures over 260 days, met leading figures from government, arts and culture, and created a legacy both for an emerging nation and for himself as an emerging writer. In Leadville,
Colorado, he told the silver miners of Renaissance craftsmanship, and declared them the best-dressed men in America; but did he really declare his genius to the New York Customs, and if not, does it matter? Mingling epigrams, history, and literary lore are Oscar's grandson Merlin Holland , tour guide John Cooper , historian Mary Warner
Blanchard and critic Declan Kiberd. Producer Chris spurr

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.
