Some thoughts on the problems they raise by G. Wilson Knight
A high proportion of the books about Shakespeare appearing in this quatercentenary year have been concerned with the problems raised by the Sonnets. In particular, Leslie Hotson 's book Mr. W. H. suggests a new identity for its subject. Wilson Knight surveys the recent literature and outlines his own view of the solution to some of the questions involved.

by Barry Bermange with Harlus Coring
I I am an employee of twenty years' standing-a business man, from the world of solid things, of real conclusive objects-and all this is alien to me, it is a pole apart, it is the opposite of that which I know, and that which I know and this do not equate, they do not reconcile. I question my presence here. I answer: " AU is not well."

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.
