: This Week's Comoosers

The Court of Henry VIII
A gifted amateur himself, the young Henry brought to the English court a new emphasis on musical entertainment: lavish ' disguisings ' and ' mavings ' became favourite diversions, enriching the repertoryofsongsanddancesand severely depleting the privy purse.
With one exception, all five programmes this week dwell on this secular aspect of Henrv's musical life. sustained as it was by the work of several composers - among them William Cornyshe Robert Fayrfax and. to some extent, the monarch himself.

Tallis. Twenty-fifth in a series of 28 programmes devised and introduced by Basil Lam Goethe, in a fine simile, remarked that architecture was silent music. The music of Tallis gives an impression of massive tonal architecture equalled by few great composers; and whilst embodying the lasting qualities of noble building, it displays that inevitable flow and dignified eloquence which characterise the finest masterpieces of the rhetorical arts.

: A Song of Summer

with Paul Scotield as Richard Jefferies
A monologue from the last essays Of RICHARD JEFFERIES , compiled by ROGER FRITH
Long after Richard Jefferies removed from Coate Farm. his native home near Swindon. he would return there in spirit and imagination, as his numerous novels and essays bear witness:
* I planted myself everywhere, under the trees, in the fields and footpaths, by day and night,' he said in his last essay, My Old Village.
It is no wonder, then, that one summer's day at Goring-by. Sea. his last home in Sussex, he should be discovered again at Coate. the cradle of his experiences and ' soul life reflecting on nature and the future of mankind.

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.
