: Appointment in Mayerling

by FRANCIS DILLON
On 30 January 1889 the body of Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria was found in Mayerling, his hunting lodge in the Vienna Woods. He had been shot. So had the young girl whose body lay beside his. Was it suicide or murder? If it was murder, who was responsible? If suicide, did he die for love? Many novels, plays, and films have followed the romantic path to Mayerling, but this programme is concerned only with what really happened.

: The Koad to Number 10

At last there is one certainty in politics - there must be a General Election within the next 12 months. While the options in time are narrowing, the pressures on the Party leaders are steadily increasing. Throughout the run-up period, Radio 4 will broadcast this occasional series, specially designed to help politically-minded listeners to keep up both with the issues as they develop, and with party strategy and tactics.

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.
