: Drama on 3: Professor Bernhardi

By Arthur Schnitzler. In the Vienna of 1900, a distinguished Jewish doctor prevents a Catholic priest administering last rites to a dying patient.
His actions provoke a political witch-hunt, leading to the professor's trial and imprisonment. Set among the top-hatted intelligentsia of Freud's Vienna, Schnitzler's play exposes the mire of prejudice beneath its glittering surface. It is both a moral thriller and a comedy, populated by a gallery of roguish, warring politicians and doctors, and shot through with great satirical humour. The cast includes Christopher Godwin , Dale Rapley ,
John Stahl , Andrew Woodall , John Dougall , Justin Salinger , Andrew Havill , Mark Lockyer , Tom Godwin , David Horovitch , Geoffrey Beevers , Sophie Roberts and Rachel Atkins. Producer Mark Rosenblatt

: Sunday Feature: The Splintered City:the Halifax Harbour Explosion, 1917

Sean Street tells the story of the biggest man-made explosion prior to the atomic bomb, when a munitions ship and a refugee relief vessel collided and Halifax, Nova Scotia , was devastated. Two thousand people were killed, many thousands more were injured and the world was changed.
The event initiated both the first global response to a disaster and the academic study of catastrophe. It contributed to the development of nuclear weapons, yet triggered a highly creative cultural and artistic response. Sean Street visits the scene of the disaster and explores its causes and contradictions and, 90 years on, meets some of the survivors who still remember, producer Julian May

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.
