: STORY TIME

Tom Brown 's Schooldays by Thomas Hughes adapted as a reading in five parts by ANGELA JESSON
Read by MICHAEL TUDOR BARNES
1: Early Days. Tom finds a plac among the Browns of Berkshire and leaves home for the first time
Tom Brown 's Schooldays has been dramatised before, and filmed, and televised-but each new generation must gain pleasure from comparing their own schooldays with the strict and unyielding but strangely liberal discipline of Dr. Arnold at Rugby School. Tom Brown , unconventionally brought up in his father's squirearchy in Berkshire, is sent to Rugby. There he meets with the friendly, likeable East, the bully Flashman, and the simple, vulnerable Arthur: and as we listen to Tom's progress through the school we watch in parallel the progress of our own maturity.
Produced by Anthony Cornish
Michael Tudor Barnes is a National Theatre player

: Nicholas II, Tsar of All the Russias

Fifty years ago, on July 16, 1918, the last Tsar of Russia was murdered. Tonight's programme examines the character of the dead man.
We see the sad, patient little man; the autocrat who believed in Divine Right and who refused all reform; the husband ruined by an adored and adoring wife with her crazy friends, including Rasputin; the worried father of an heir incurably sick; and the prisoner of the Reds who picked his teeth with a fork to mock his guards by a display of 'democratic' table manners. With Hugh Burden as the Tsar and Betty Hardy as the Tsarina.

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.

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