Playing the Great Game Writers are a subversive crowd, nothing if not traitors.
The better the writer, the greater the betrayal tends to appear.... John Ie Carre 's vindication of Graham Greene 's predicament in the 1950s - when his depiction of the secret services nearly brought him to the Old Bailey - underlines the extent to which spy fiction takes its cue from the real world.
But given the current climate of disillusion in the espionage trade, have the spy writers anything more to say?

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.
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.
