Hugh Sykes examines the lives of some 20th-century people who rebelled against society's conventions. 4: Paul Robeson
'There was a heroic quality about much that he achieved, both as an entertainer and as a spokesman for his race.'
(THE TIMES, obituary,
27 January 1976)
Paul Robeson was one of the greatest popular singers of the 20th century, but he was transformed from hero to villain in the eyes of many Americans through his consistent advocacy of black and left-wing causes. In the early years of the Cold War,
Robeson championed the Soviet Union and, as a consequence, was made virtually a prisoner in his own country. Research MIKE wooi. F

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
