Daniel Defoe died 250 years ago. His best-known book,
Robinson Crusoe , was published in 1719. Its ' homely plain style ' and racy narrative made the book an immediate success and other novels followed.
But Defoe's novels were written only in old age after a varied life as a soldier, businessman, spy and satirical pamphleteer. Frank Delaney examines his literary career with Pat Rogers and Juliet Mitchell.

by MARY WEBB dramatised for radio in three parts by MICHELENE WANDOR with and Set in Shropshire and beginning in 1803, this is the story of the difference between a brother and a sister.
Gideon's desire for wealth is all-consuming but although Pru works hand-for-hand beside him at the plough her heart is bent on love and honest communication with her neighbours. But folk can be cruel and Pru Sarn was born with a hare-lip; surely an indication that she is bewitched.

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.
