: Sunday Feature: The First War on Terror

Novelist Hari Kunzru explores the literary dimensions of the Edwardian anarchist scare, exploring the strange times 100 years ago, when Britain was both fighting and imagining a terrorist threat against shadowy figures who wanted to do away with the state itself. The idea gave rise to a ferment of fictional creativity - and a secret police response that could be just as creative. The most famous book it inspired was Conrad's The Secret Agent, but there were many other now-forgotten anarchist scare novels with eerily modern images of anarchists in airships flattening London.
Bringing the subject up to date, literary scholars
Laurence Davies and Deaglan O'Donghaile briefly consider the modern response to 9/11, and ask whether novels on terrorism ever get it right. Producer Louise Yeoman

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.
