: On Severn's Banks

The Music of the Shires of Gloucester, Worcester, Salop and Somerset

The Valley of the Severn, within a radius of thirty miles of the City of Gloucester, holds a unique position in this country's history, in that it has been the birth-place of many of the great English Musicians of the twentieth century. We may cite the following names - Sir Edward Elgar, Sir Hubert Parry, Sir Herbert Brewer, Dr. Basil Harwood, Gustav Holst, Vaughan Williams, Herbert Howells, nor must we forget the great musical historian, Sir Henry Hadow.

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.
