An eye-witness account of today's meeting by John Moon


Unknown: John Moon


Founded by Douglas Cleverdon on the story entitled ' Enoch Soames ' in Max Beerbohm 's book ' Seven Men' with V. C. Clinton-Baddeley as Max Beerbohm
Denis Arundell as Enoch Soames and Brian Cummins as the Devil
Production by Moray McLaren
This play presents the old theme of Faust in a new version typical of Max Beerbohm. Enoch Soames , a minor poet of the 'nineties, is so certain of posthumous fame that he sells his soul to the Devil in return for a visit to the British Museum Reading Room one hundred years hence. It is his hope and intention, of course, to gloat upon the glory of his own name.
Listeners may depend upon
Max Beerbohm to provide Enoch Soamea and them, with a surprise ending.
(A recording of the programme broadcast in the Western programme on July 31)

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.

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.
