The King and the Cabbalist is best described as a piece of historical detective work in the byways of the eighteenth century. The King was Baron Neuhoff, alias King Theodore of Corsica; the Cabbalist was Dr. Hayim Jacob Samuel Falk, a prominent figure in that obscure and discreditable world of mystics and necromancers. Falk specialised in the discovery of hidden treasure, and treasure was what the King most required in his needy London days. So these two arch-charlatans met and their subsequent activities were recorded by two worthy biographers-Falk by his Sancho Panza-like servant, the King by Horace Walpole.

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.
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.
