: A Word in Edgeways

A late-evening conversation in which
GILLIAN REYNOLDS , JAMES RING and A. M. P. BROOKES freely exchange thoughts, opinions, ideas and prejudices with BRIAN REDHEAD
Produced by JOHN MUSGRAVE The four people who begin talking to each other on a Saturday night have no idea where it will all lead to at the end of the programme. But they do know that, in between, whatever they say will be considered gems of wisdom by some and nonsense by others. They know the letters will flow in on Monday morning - mostly addressed to Brian Redhead who has prompted, provoked, and silenced his guests for nearly four years.
It's important that a programme like this isn'too short. ' 'Give people time to think,' says John Musgrave , ' and don'expect them to sum up God, birth control, or the economic situation, all in two minutes '

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.
