: SMETANA

Quartet in E minor
(Scenes from my life) played by The Stratton String Quartet:
George Stratton (violin) ; Carl Taylor (violin) ; Watson Forbes
(viola) ; John Moore (cello)
When Smetana composed his Quartet in E minor, ' Aus meinem Leben ', he said he intended that the form should not follow orthodox procedure, but should be the outcome of the subject, the subject being ' The story of my life
The first movement portrays his early days-his love of art, romantic disposition, and yearnings. The second suggests memories of his gay youth. The third ' recalls the bliss of my first love for a girl who afterwards became my faithful wife ', and the fourth depicts the joy of creating a national music, but ends on a sad note, a glimpse into the melancholy future and the beginning of his deafness.

: SEIRN AN DUAN SO

Cuirm chiuil Ie 6rain a dh' iarradh leis an luchd eisdeachd
(A Gaelic musical programme)
Here is another of these tuneful little programmes that are delighting not only those who speak ' the tongue' but also many Sassenachs who have learnt to appreciate the lovely melodies of these traditional tunes. One of the most enthusiastic listeners to them, incidentally, is Davy Burnaby.
Tonight's programme consists of request numbers that have been received in listeners' letters, and it includes some of the best of the traditional Gaelic airs. Even those who do not understand the language will be able to appreciate the songs.

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.
