A personal portrait compiled from the anecdotes and reminiscences of the men and women who knew him: among them, Charles Greville. Queen Victoria, Anthony Fonblanque , and Harriette Wilson.
Lord Melbourne was brilliantly gifted but little concerned to make use of his gifts. When the King sent for him as the prospective Prime Minister he told his secretary that he thought thewholething'a damned bore' - and most certainly meant it. Relaxed, witty, and charming, he may have avoided unnecessary effort but was competent in carrying out what he must. His success in politics was not reflected in his relations with women. He was cited in two somewhat scandalous divorce cases and was married to the notoriously unfaithful Lady Caroline Lamb : Queen Victoria, however, was devoted to him. Produced by NESTA PAIN

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.
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.
