: Classic Storylines

The second of four programmes reconsidering stories which have had a profound influence on popular culture. 2: Oliver Twist. Charles Dickens 's story of an orphan who has to re-invent himself as he moves between the dingy underworld squalor and gentility of the middle classes of Victorian England reverberates still in popular culture. The David Lean film, made in 1948, remains, for social historian Roy Porter , the definitive version of the book. The actual resolution of who Oliver is and how he is re-united with his family is often overlooked in favour of the more memorable images - Bill Sykes clubbing Nacy to death or the young boy saying "Please Sir, I want some more". Peggy Reynolds talks to Roy Porter , Steven Connor (Professor of English Literature at Birkbeck College) and Lionel Bart , whose musical Oliver! provides so many people with memories of the story. Producer Sally Marmion Repeat

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.
