Justin O'Brien 's
English version of La Chute
Narrative edited by Harry Moore
A one-time Paris barrister, now spending his days and nights in a bar in the sailors' quarter of Amsterdam, meets a compatriot and tells him the story of his life, expressing modern man's hypocrisy, his need for justice, and the hope that, when judged, he be judged innocent. In the figure of this self-styled ' judge-penitent' Camus has created one of the most disturbing characters of our time.
Production by H. B. Fortuin

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.
