The Envy of the World

Rudely Truncated
In the second of three documentaries charting the history of the Third
Programme and Radio 3, Humphrey Carpenter investigates how the Third captured the intellectual high-ground with talks by the likes of Isaiah Berlin and Bertrand Russell. The Hilda Tablet plays of Henry Reed offered a lighter touch, and the Third broadcast one of the most famous programmes ever - Under Milk Wood. In 1957, cuts to the Third provoked a high-profile protest campaign. Today's programme includes the first broadcast of a speech by TS Eliot as part of the protest, in which he defends the rights of those who prefer the symphony orchestra to the dance band.
Meanwhile, the arrival of William Glock brought more contemporary European music to the network, leading to rumours that some British composers were specifically excluded.

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.
