'The Jesters of the Lord' by Frederic Manning
Adapted and produced by Rayner Heppenstall
With Robert Eddison as Francis of Assisi, and Abraham Sofaer as the Pope
In 1209 or 1210. after much delay and with misgiving, Innocent III granted the young Francesco Bernardone permission to found a religious brotherhood following the rule of absolute poverty. The interview at which this was done and the first adventure of the ' little brothers ' as they set out from Rome are portrayed with great delicacy by a writer who died in 1935

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
