A portrait of William Cobbett , who died 150 years ago, on 18 June 1835.
'Take this self-taught peasant for all in all, he was, perhaps, in some respects, a more extraordinary Englishman than any other of his time.' (THE TIMES) William Cobbett , the son of a small farmer, was one of the most fascinating and quixotic characters of late Georgian England; summed up in a phrase, 'he was a friend of the people'. To his books, including Rural Rides, we owe much of our knowledge of England as it was in his day.

Still more money and resources will have to be found to join in the 'Star Wars' research. Can it all be budgeted for? If not, what will have to give? Presented by John Eidinow.
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.
