Bernard van Dieren , who died last year, was one of the most remarkable figures in the world of music. Genius so many-sided is rare in this age of specialists, but as Cecil Gray claims in .his article on page 6, van Dieren was first and foremost a musician, and tonight's Memorial Concert may help listeners to understand the respect, in which he was held by some of the leading composers of his time.

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.
