: BORODIN

Symphony No. 2 in B minor . played by BBC Scottish Orchestra
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Ian Whyte
The history of Borodin's Second Symphony is closely linked with that of his opera Prince Igor. The first ideas for the symphony occurred to him early in 1869, but in April of that year Stassov suggested the opera subject to him, and for a time he devoted all his energies to Igor. Then he decided (temporarily) that the subject was unsuitable. ' Don't worry about it ', he wrote to Stassov. ' The material won't be wasted. It will all go into my Second Symphony.'

: Celia Johnson as Elizabeth and Leon Quartermaine as Mr. Bennet in 'MISS ELIZABETH BENNET'

A play from ' Pride and Prejudice' by A. A. Milne
Other characters include :
Mrs. Bennet, Miss Jane Bennet , Miss Elizabeth Bennet , Miss Mary Bennet , Miss Kitty Bennet , Miss Lydia Bennet , Mr. Charles Bingley, Miss Bingley, Mr. Darcy, Sir William Lucas , Lady Lucas, Miss Charlotte Lucas , Mr. George Wickham, Mr. Collins, and Lady Catherine de
Bourgh
Adapted and produced by Barbara Burnham
Jane Austen 's ' Pride and Prejudice ', written one hundred and forty years ago, is as alive today as it ever was. Indeed it has become the subject of a popular film recently released in the West End. Its shrewd portrayal of character and its acid, if gentle, humour lose nothing by translation into the medium of drama.
Celia Johnson played the part of Elizabeth with memorable charm in the production of Helen Jerome 's adaptation of ' Pride and Prejudice' at the St. James's Theatre, London, in 1936.

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 from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
