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

'Her trim figure in her blue uniform made his eyes swim in his head. She ravished his senses.... It made him aware of his own inferiority.' Producer MITCH RAPER
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

I'm Just an Ordinary Person Really
Back in the breathtaking bibliotheque of Mr Cliff Hanger where this week's potboiler culled au hasard from the heaving shelves is the story of a mind-reader, a self-spun yarn of clairvoyance extraordinaire. But then, the medium is the message....

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.
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.
