This dialogue attempts to reconstruct the interchange of ideas between Karl Marx and Michael Bakunin when they met on November 3, 1864. The Russian socialist was on a visit to London: Marx, living here in exile, paid a friendly call on him. They had known one another for more than twenty years. Each was wary of the other, and both were competing for leadership of the workers' international. Marx was opposed to Bakunin's panslavism and libertarianism: Bakunin was equally opposed to Marx's ' Germanic ' state socialism. But each still regarded the other as a possible ally in the struggle against the bourgeoisie. with Marius Goring as Karl Marx
Meier Tzelniker as Michael Bakunin Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON

For 400 years Luther has been known in this country by less than a dozen of his thousands of writings. Now an edition of more than fifty volumes is in progress in the U.S.A.
Professor Rupp speaks about the recent translation into English of some of the lectures Luther gave as a young professor in Wittenberg, and considers their bearing on the traditional picture of the Reformer.

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
