A literary magazine recalled by four of its quondam editors:
Sir Richard Rees , Jack Common
Henry Williamson, Sir Ifor Evans
Programme compiled and introduced by Rayner Heppenstall The Adelphi was founded by the late
John Middleton Murry after the death of his first wife, Katherine Mansfield.
It was intended to be a vehicle for
D. H. Lawrence , parts of whose Fantasia of the Unconscious were published in early issues, as were writings by almost every notab e autoor of the day. Later The Adelphi first published George Orwell ' (E. A. Blair) and, apart from The Sunday Referee, Dylan Thomas.
This programme follows the journal through its succeeding political, pacifist, and agricultural phases and its return n
1948 to its position as a purely literary magazine, though by then circulation had dropped far below its original-and surprising—twenty thousand.

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.
