Once they were ferocious foes of the British Raj: now they are . holy warriors attacking the Russian-backed government in Afghanistan. In the region known as the North West Frontier, the passage of invading armies since ancient times has served merely to harden the traditions of tribal life and warfare.

: A Book at Bedtime: The Wardrobe

by THOMAS MANN translated by II. T. LOWE-FORTER Read by David Markham
'The room, with its four white walls, from which the three pink chairs stood out like strawberries from whipped cream, Jay in the unstable light of the candle. But the wardrobe over there was open and it was not empty. Somebody was standing in it, a creature so lovely that Albrecht van der Qualen 's heart stood still a moment and then in long, deep, quiet throbs resumed its beating.' Producer

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.
