: AMERICAN MUSIC

played by the BBC Scottish Orchestra. Conductor, Guy Warrack
The three composers represented in this programme have all taken a prominent part in the musical life of the United States. Aaron Copland , born in New York in 1900, is probably the best known to British listeners. Not only have several of his more important compositions been broadcast from time to time, but he himself has broadcast from the studio as a pianist.
Joseph Deems Taylor , born in New York in 1885, is also a journalist of distinction. He has been war correspondent, music critic, broadcast speaker, and editor.
Daniel Gregory Mason , born in Brook-line, Massachusetts, in 1873, comes from one of America's oldest musical families, and is the author of a number of books on music.

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.
