Hugo Kramm , who is the principal conductor and musical director of the Norwegian State Broadcasting, was born in 1890. He studied both the violin and piano and became a first-rate exponent of each instrument, making his public debut as soloist both in Beethoven's Violin Concerto and Piano Concerto No. 5, in E flat. For some years he played in string quartets and eventually in 1919 he was appointed conductor of the Municipal Theatre Orchestra in Stavanger. In 1924 he became conductor of the Oslo Philharmonic Society, and three years later he took over his present post with the Norwegian State Broadcasting at Oslo.

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.
