Sophie Wyss , one of the most versatile singers on the air, was born in Switzerland and spent her youth near Neuchatel, on the borders of German- and French-speaking Switzerland. Owing to this, she claims, she is able to sing German lieder to the manner born, as well as French songs.
Sophie Wyss studied at the Conservatoire de Geneve, and soon after leaving there married an Englishman. She now -lives in this country and returns to Switzerland only for holidays.
In her ten years of broadcasting she claims to have brought to the microphone more new works than any other singer. She was the first to bring to the listening public many of the songs of such composers as Honegger, Milhaud, and Tailleferre. She sings in six languages and has an almost unlimited repertoire.

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.

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.
