What diverted us when we were at war a quarter of a century ago ? What diverts us today? If there is perhaps less romance in the theatre, at least music, colour, pretty girls, -comedians to make us laugh-these are all still in demand. Listeners will be able to compare tunes from shows of yesteryear, such as Chu Chin Chotc and Maid of the Mountains, with tunes from shows of today, such as Cochran's revue at the Savoy, Lights Up, and the show that has gone from the air to the London Palladium, Garrison Theatre.

: VIOLIN AND PIANO

Isolde Menges (violin)
Howard Ferguson (piano)
Denis Matthews 's five sketches for violin and piano had their first public performance at a National Gallery concert some weeks ago, when the same artists who are playing tonight made a success of the work. In a short note on the work, Howard Ferguson said that ' these Sketches should be thought of not as five separate pieces but as a complete work. The contrast between one piece and the next is always sufficient .to provide variety, yet never abrupt enough to disturb the sense of unity of the work as a whole. This unity is further enhanced by the recurrence in the final Rhapsody of material that has already appeared in the Prelude. As the writing throughout establishes the two instruments on an equal footing, the Sketches are duets in the fullest sense of the word '.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
