The World of Women: Illustrating Verse

A collaboration between Olga Katzin and Pearl Binder.

This programme will be an interesting example of how an author and an artist collaborate to produce an illustrated book. Pearl Binder is an artist who has illustrated several books, including "The Real East-End", by Thomas Burke, "Back Stage", by Philip Godfrey, and Jane Austen's "Persuasion". Olga Katzin, the wife of Hugh Miller, the actor, is a well-known journalist who writes in periodicals under various pseudonyms.
Today Olga Katzin will make a forecast of life a hundred years hence, and Pearl Binder will illustrate her verse before the television camera.

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.
