A New Image for the Dinosaur? Our traditional picture of the dinosaur is of the ' terrible lizard,' huge slow-moving reptiles, which have been called ' the epitome of extinctness.' But is this really true? It has recently been suggested that dinosaurs were, in fact, highly successful warm-blooded animals, and the ancestors of our modern birds.

: Evan Harrington

by GEORGE MEREDITH , dramatised in five parts by D. G. BRIDSON with Anna Massey
Simon Cadell , Rosalind Ayres Jill Balcon , Angela Pleasence andThe Countess has little difficulty in persuading Evan to abandon his duty and to stay at Beckley Court with Rose and her family. Despite the sneers of Rose's brother and his friends who had met Evan when he was not afraid to declare himself a tailor, Evan cannot tear himself away from his beloved - not even when she is responsible for an accident which befalls him. The Countess soon has half her family installed at Beckley Court, and it's unfortunate that one of the other guests should have known Old Mel and recognises his daughters. 3: Plot and Counterplot

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.
