The Radio 2 Arts Programme


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Seamus McKee presents an autumn edition live from Northern Ireland.
Studio guests are Belfast bom composer Shaun Davey , whose credits include The Relief Of
Derry Symphony and The Brendan Voyage , and his partner Rita Connolly , soloist on those orchestral suites, whose debut CD has just been released. From the Impact 92
sessions in Derry, Gerry Anderson casts a whimsical eye over his native city; plus music and performance from the Port Pageant - a dramatisation of the constant stream of emigration from the north west of Ireland in the 1860s.
Producer Jim Sheridan

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.
