: * Bayreuth: 1899

Sir Charles Tennyson recalls hiis visits td Bayreuth, the first of which took place before the present century.
I do not think that younger generations would tolerate a massive Briinnhilde smacking her equally massive horse smartly on the rump and flopping into the stage bonfire!
Sir Charles Tennyson , who was born on 8 November 1879, died on 22 June this year. This is a repeat of a talk he recorded last year.

: * British Art at Yale

Earlier this summer the Yale Center for British Art was officially inaugurated at New Haven, Connecticut, to house what was the world's largest private collection of English paintings, drawings and rare books until Paul MeUon presented it to his alma mater. But Louis Kahn 's innovatory building is more than an art gallery; it is an integral part of the university.
In this report Philip French talks about the nature of the Center and discusses its role with the American director, Edmund Pillsbury , and his two British assistants. Malcolm Cormack. Curator of Paintings. and Andrew Wilton. Curator of Prints and Drawings.

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.
