' The West Indian novel has two functions,' STUART HALL , a young Jamaican critic, wrote some years ago. ' It must give us an eye to see our society, and an eye to measure ourselves in our search for identity.' Since then many English-speaking writers from the Caribbean have received serious attention in England. Some of the writers concerned, who have made their temporary home in London, discuss their literary and cultural objectives with Stuart Hall.
Their conversation takes place against the background of a newly won political identity: the first Federal Parliament of the West Indies was opened in Trinidad on April 22

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.
