The Lady in Scarlett Margaret Mitchell wrote the best-selling novel of all time. Gone with the Wind has sold almost 30 million copies - second only to the Bible. What sort of woman could invent this classic romantic fantasy?

Peggy Mitchell ? And if so, who was Rhett Butler ? Jill Neville went to
Georgia and found the original Tara.

Jacques Darras suggests we can learn some lessons from Burgundy for our communal European future.

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.
