Parassia's Song. Parassia sings sadly about her lover and her misfortunes, but gradually she grows happier and her feet cannot refrain from dancing.
Ballade. He is lying dead and forgotten on the battlefield, and whilst ravens make a feast of his blood, far away his wife sits awaiting him. She rocks her child and sings to it: Soon thy father will be back, and we will all rejoice.' But he is lying dead and forgotten.
Mushrooms. I am going a-mushrooming, a full basket I shall bring to my parents-in-law. But to my old man I will bring a toadstool, and when ho is poisoned, I shall find a magic herb which will induce my fair love to come to me.
Trepak. On a dark night a snowstorm falls upon a poor, lonely drunkard and dances around him a wild trepak, until he is covered with snow for ever.
Field-marshal Death. The battle raves all day fiercely and when it closes at night Field-marshal Death appears and proudly surveys his victory.

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.
