Scene: A square outside the china shop, Au bonheur fragile, owned by Boniface.
In a quaint French seaport the tourists will buy anything; of this Chariot was convinced.

The scheme, alas, failed, although three gentlemen from other countries and one from another world did show an interest. And so they lived unhappily ever after.

A series of six lectures by K. C. Wheare
Gladstone Professor of Government and Public Administration in the University of Oxford 1 — ' They do as they do'
Taking as his title Mr. Podsnap's grave comment on the way foreign countries conduct their government, Professor Wheare suggests that a closer examination of democratic procedures abroad might lessen our own tendencies towards Mr. Podsnap's constitutional chauvinism.

Written and narrated by John Lehmann
John Lehmann speaks of three young poets, all friends of his, who died before the end of the last war. Demetrios Capetanakis , Yura Soyfer , and Julian Bell never met each other, and came from widely differing backgrounds; but as Mr. Lehmann points out-and the letters and poetry of his three friends that he has selected corroborate-they held much in common. Indeed, the Greek, the Russian exile, and the Englishman bear striking witness to the homogeneity of that literary generation of which they were all, in their several ways, such notable representatives.
Derek Hirt. Gerik Schjelderup and Robert Rietty

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.
