First of two programmes in which novelist Louise Welsh considers what "gothic" really means, and why gothic literature still captures our imagination.

A Gothic Quest 11.30am R4
The novelist Louise Welsh (listed recently by The Guardian as one of their "50 women to watch") extends a long pointy finger tipped by an even longer pointy black nail and then slowly coils it back as she requests your company on a dark tour of the gothic genre. Starting in "a spectacular place, a city of the dead" (aka the Necropolis cemetery in her home town of Glasgow), Welsh interviews various experts about the ways in which gothic has popped up in poetry, fiction, art, architecture and film since the first gothic novel, Horace Walpole's The Castle of Otranto, was printed in 1764. Fellow novelist Sarah Waters joins the debate halfway through and provides the best description of gothic as something that "takes us to a place of fear, beyond our place in society, and shows all our anxieties." If the idea of a programme dealing with "death, madness, altered states, scientific abuses and outsiders" puts you off your mid-morning coffee, just remember that one of the great joys of gothic is that it never takes itself too seriously!

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.
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.
