: With Great Pleasure

P. D. James presents her personal choice of poetry and prose with Roy Marsden and Sheila Mitchell
'It may seem strange, even for a crime novelist, to include two poems about murder in a programme entitled
With Great Pleasure. But both, when I read them many years ago, gave me the authentic, if singular pleasure of a frisson of pure horror.'
Producer ALEC REID BBC Bristol

: A Year In the Life of The Albert Hall

From the final strains of 'Land of hope and glory' to 6,000 ladies singing 'Jerusalem' at the AGM of the National Federation of Women's Institutes, this unique Victorian concert hall has changed its mood hundreds of times. From the wild and full houses for the big sounds of Frank Sinatra , Shirley Bassey and Phil Collins to the solo vocal of Brenda Arnau bravely facing thousands of empty seats. From the mayhem of the Chelsea Arts Ball (when dinner was served at every seat) to the sombre sounds and colours of the Festival of Remembrance in November, followed a few days later by the bright lights, the glitter and gloss conjured up for the election of a new Miss
World. All this with a sprinkling of brass bands, boxing, tennis, ballroom dancing, gymnastics, gala evenings - and a performance of Messiah nearly every month.
Reporter Nigel Farrell has haunted this famous auditorium for the past 12 months. Producer PETER ESTALL

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.
