THE Shropshire Lad poems of Housman have stirred many a composer to seek the expression of their typically English folk-spirit. Mr. Hely-Hutchinson. one of the latest composers to set some of them. was born in South Africa and held musical posts there (among them those of Lecturer in Music at the South African College of Music and at Cape Town University) before joining the B.B.C. One of his orchestral compositions recently received an award from the Carnegie Trust, which undertakes each year the publication of a number of meritorious British works.

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.
