After two years' National Service and a violent row with his father, Bill Cart-wright signed on as a regular soldier and broke all ties with his family. Now, 17 years later, he has come home, apparently in prodigal spirit, yet the refuge he seeks would seem to be from the present rather than the past.

A series of five programmes on people who have played an important, sometimes decisive, part in the life and work of a famous man or woman.
1: The Tyrant and Her Slave by EDNA HEALEY
The ' perfect ' friendship between the Duke of Wellington and Mrs Harriet Arbuthnot.
Narrator Gavin Campbell The Duke of Wellington was ' big enough to walk alone '. Yet, after Waterloo, when his deafness increased his isolation, and, much against his will, he put on the harness of a statesman, he needed companions he could trust. In 1822, Harriet Arbuthnot was a pretty woman in her late 20s, 24 years younger than the Duke and 26 younger than her husband. She was practical, truthful, intelligent and fiercely loyal. She and her husband were the Duke's chief support in his political years. The three were inseparable. When she died, aged only 41, the two old men were inconsolable. with NIGEL GREAVES and GORDON REID Directed by JOHN THEOCHARIS

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.
