A dramatic exploration into a man's mind
THE place : Post-war Britain
THE PERSONS : A man maimed by the Gestapo
THE CHALLENGE : How to forgive with David Peel , Dorothy Gordon and Vernon Greeves
Production by Charles Parker
David Lytton writes: 'The subject of this play has been under discussion now for one thousand nine hundred and fifty-five years, and the problems it raises are no nearer solution.... It has been quite simply summarised in the prayer Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us.

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.

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.
