Six talks by H. L. A. HART
Professor of Jurisprudence in the University of Oxford 3: Intention
A man's intention in acting is usually of crucial importance in the criminal law. Yet by ' intention ' the law does not always mean what the layman means. Why is there this divergence? Is it defensible?

: The Childermass

by Wyndham Lewis with Donald Wolfit
Raymond Huntley and James McKechnie
Scene: Outside Heaven
Music composed and conducted by WALTER GOEHR
Produced by D. G. BRIDSON
Third broadcast of the production first presented in May 1955
H. G. Wells once said of Wynd. ham Lewis's novel The Childermass: ' its potential readers are scattered through the world like particles of gold in a not very auriferous quartz. How is it to find them? 'The success of the radio adaptation of the book broadcast in the 1950s must have done much to solve that problem. It was hailed as ' a superb piece of radio writing,', carrying ' the impact of one of the few original minds of our time.'

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.
