7: Georg Buchner
Georg Buchner died in 1837 at the age of 23. He is perhaps best known as the author of the play from which Alban Berg took his opera Wozzeck. He was so far ahead of his time that many people do not realise that he was writing in the early 19th century. Both Woyzeck and Danton's Death are extremely relevant today.

Is it skill in timing - or lack of it - that is the main factor in determining the occupancy of Number 10? This is the sphere in which the role of the Polls can be crucial, and it is therefore important to examine the principles to which they should subscribe. In this the second broadcast in Radio Four's Special Election Year series, MICHAEL SHIELDS , Chairman of National Opinion Polls, is questioned by ANTHONY KING , Professor of Government, Essex University.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
