'The big room was scattered with busy police, measuring, photographing, dusting for fingerprints. I knew they were there, but all I saw was Regina lying on her back, her face the colour of cream, and one arm flung out sideways with the dead white fingers curling upwards as if in supplication. There had been no mercy.' (Music: Corazon, played by Woody Herman )

: Hermsprong

by ROBERT BAGE dramatised in five parts by D. G. BRIDSON with and First published in 1796, Hermsprong is a delightful, witty, surprisingly modern novel which until recently has received almost no literary acclaim. Set in England at the close of the 18th century, it is a probing, picaresque tale which evokes the most important issues of the day while at the same time, in a period of revolution abroad, questions the established order with a refreshing simplicity.

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.
