: 'IF'

' If the Lawrence brothers had not gone to India '
John L. Morison , D.Litt.
' Here lies Henry Lawrence who tried to do his duty.' This tragic epitaph was dictated by Sir Henry Lawrence as he lay dying in the Residency at Lucknow during the Indian Mutiny.
Henry Lawrence was one of three brothers who went from Ulster to change the course of Indian history. Henry's work at Lucknow, John's masterful administration of the Punjab, and George's fifty-three years of less spectacular but equally valuable service formed an integral part of Indian development. Had this Ulster triumvirate chosen some other career, Indian affairs would almost certainly have taken a very different course. What that course would have been forms the subject of John Lyle Morison 's talk this evening.
Professor Morison holds the chair of Modern History at Armstrong College, Newcastle. An authority on Indian history, he published a life of Sir Henry Lawrence in 1934, and has contributed to the Cambridge History of the British Empire.

' Redmond O'Hanlon '
T. W. Moody. Ph.D.
' It is a curious fact', writes T. W. Moody, lecturer in History at Queen's University, Belfast, 'that the name long borne by one of the two great Parliamentary parties in England first became current in Ireland to designate a class of professional bandits and terrorists.'
O'Hanlon, about whom Dr. Moody is to talk this evening, was a constant thorn in the flesh of the Irish government, and after his death there grew up around him a wealth of romantic legend.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
