: She Gives you Sympathy

A portrait of George Eliot
(born 22 November 1819) Written and narrated by Gabriel Woolf with Jill Balcon as George Eliot Frank Duncan as G. H. Lewes John Rye as John Cross
Others taking part SEAN Arnold WILFRID CARTER , KATHLEEN HELME GODFREY KENTON
Mary Ann Evans was of humble origins and for 24 years she flouted public opinion by living with G. H. Lewes who was unable to obtain a divorce from his wife.
Yet she was acclaimed by Herbert Spencer as the ' greatest woman who has lived on earth,' and is now widely thought to have been England's greatest Victorian novelist. The wit, compassion, and humanity that inform her books were equally characteristic of her life.
Produced by HALLAM TENNYSON (Frank Duncan is in 'The Crunch' at the St Martin's Theatre, London)

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.
