Regenlied (A Song of Rain),
Unbewegte laue Luft (The air is still and mild) Dein blaues Auge (Thine eye of blue)
RAINDROPS, in the first of these songs, bring back memories of the days ' when wo went forth barefoot and braved the weather, our faces joyfully turned to the wet breezes, our hearts in tune and the pulse of life throbbing within us-days of childhood, lost for ever.'
In the second song are two pictures—the calm of slumbering nature and the turmoil of passionate desire within the man. The contrast is borne out in the music, which is at first gently melodious and afterwards urged forward on an impetuous accompaniment.
The third song is a short and familiar form of apostrophe. Musically, it is a piece of calm, effortless melody that wanders into another key and back again, companioned by gently glowing harmonies.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
