E. W. Korngold , who is now in his thirty-ninth year, was only eleven years of age when he composed his pantomime, The Snowman, which was first produced at the Hofoper in Vienna. His father, Julius Korngold , succeeded Hanslick as critic of the Neue Freie Presse , and is considered one of the foremost critics in Austria.
Edward MacDowell (1861-1908) was the first American to achieve distinction as a composer. His mother was an American woman of English ancestry, and his father was of Irish-Scottish descent, so that the Celtic strain in much of his music is accounted for. His last piano sonata bears the title of ' Keltic'
Among his earlier works for orchestra is ' Launcelot and Elaine' (1888), which was avowedly inspired by Tennyson's version of a part of the Arthurian legends.
Paul Lacombe (1838-1927) studied at the Paris Conservatoire, was the friend of Bizet, and in 1870 associated himself with that group of composers which sought to emancipate French music from the hands of the pedants.
He wrote over 150 works for orchestra, piano, various chamber combinations and voice. His style is characterised by a gentle romantic outlook and polished workmanship.

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.
