: Dr Johnson's ' Honoured Mistress'

William Mervyn as Dr Johnson Annette Crosbie as Hester Thrale
One of Dr Johnson's jaunts was to North Wales, in 1774, accompanying Mr and Mrs Thrale and their young daughter. Queeney.
Diaries kept by Johnson and Mrs Thrale during the trip illuminate this portrait of their unique friendship over 20 years - a relationship of intimacy and deep affection, sometimes tetchy and teasing, ending sadly in estrangement. Narrator FRANK DUNCAN
NIGEL GRAHAM as James Boswell Written by DAVID WHEELER

: Analysis

Italy - What Next?
Since the war Italy has made great changes in her economic and social life. But her recent severe import restrictions are another sign that the succession of some three dozen governments has left unsolved some major economic problems, along with questions about political extremism, the upheavals brought about by rapid industrialisation and the inadequacy of reform. The political consequences of the divorce referendum, too, are unpredictable.

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.
