Born February 6, 1838
' Personal Reminiscences'
Violet Vanbrugh
' Irving as an Arti.st'
James Agate
One hundred years ago last Sunday the greatest personality of the Victorian stage was born. Sir Henry Irving as Shylock, Becket, Mathias, and in many another role was to fill the Lyceum Theatre to overflowing for nearly a quarter of a century. It is fitting that listeners should hear something about Irving the artist by one of our leading dramatic critics, and about Irving the man by a famous actress who appeared with him in King Henry the Eighth, playing Anne Boleyn , and in two other plays understudied Ellen Terry , who was for so long associated with Irving at the Lyceum.

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.
