: AMERICAs THE GUARDIAN OF BRITISH TRADITION

Talk by Keith Kyle
Mr. Kyle, Washington correspondent of The Economist, describes how American constitutional practice illuminates English constitutional history, and vice versa. To find the symbols of the continuity of British institutional development, Americans come to Britain; but Mr. Kyle believes that to look for the reality we in this country need to go to America.

: Alec Clunes in 'VENISE SAUVEE'

Fragments of a tragedy by Simone Weil
Translated and arranged by Richard Rees
Produced by Rayner Heppenstall
Also taking part: Wilfred Babbage, Edward Higgins, Morris Sweden, Frederick Taw

When she died at Ashford in Kent in 1943 the French religious philosopher Simone Weil left among her papers an unfinished tragedy, Venise Sauvee, based upon the same story as Otway's Venice Preserved. The fragmentary text has been published, together with her notes on the play.
Simone Weil's thought was deeply influenced by Greek drama. This play represents her unique attempt to express her ideas in dramatic form - and it is clearly intended to raise echoes of Aeschylus and Sophocles.

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.
