DR. VAUGHAN WILLIAMS occupies one of the highest places in British Music of these days. In two recent years three of his works were awarded special European honours... His Pastoral Symphony, On Wenlock Edge, and Merciless Beauty were chosen by the International Society for Contemporary Music for performance at its snmmer Festivals at Satzburg and Venice. He is regarded at home almost unanimously, abroad ncreasingly, as one of the living composers who have fully earned the most serious consideration. He was born at Down Ampney. in Gloucestershire. He studied music very thoroughly in England. but not content with that, continued his studies in Germany and France. Yet all his cosmopolitan training counts for little in comparison with his deep devotion for English folk-song, plain-song and mediaeval art music, which he believes we should use as the natural foundations of our own musical language.

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.
