Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
In this evening's programme Paul Guinery shares his enthusiasm forthe choral music of Delius. The central work is Sea
Drift, Delius's haunting setting of Walt Whitman for baritone, chorus and orchestra. Although Thomas Beecham was the great champion of Delius, he gave few first performances. The autumnal
Songs of Sunset was one of those he did premiere. Songs of Farewell - another
Whitman setting - was the major work of Delius's last years, composed with the help of Eric Fenby. The programme also includes excerpts from Charles Grove 's recording of A Mass of Life and a movement from the late Requiem conducted by Richard Hickox. Producer Paul Hindmarsh

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.
