Rhapsody in B Flat......Russell Taylor ETHEL AUSTEN
Return a Conqueror (' Aïda ') .....Verdi Scenes that are brightest ............ Wallace ONE of the best-known airs from Aida, 'Return a Conqueror,' is sung by the captive Princess herself, torn by doubt and anxiety. Devoted to the soldier, Rhadames, she has joined in the acclamations of the people, to wish him success. But it is her own people against whom he is to march, and his victory means their defeat, and only too probably the death or captivity of her father, who is their king. Verdi's music sets forth these conflicting emotions with impassioned effect.

THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
IN the latter part of the eighteenth and the first part of the nineteenth centuries, the Gows were prominent in Scottish music. Neil, the most famous member of the family, was a notable violinist, beginning his musical career at the very early age of nine. Born in Perthshire, his fame as a player of Reels and Strathspeys soon extended far beyond merely local bounds, and even reached London.
PAGANINI'S command of his instrument and all its resources, was so astonishing as to earn from some contemporaries the comment that ho must surely bo in league with the devil. His career and Liszt's were so far parallel, that each was regarded as having carried the technique of his instrument to a higher pitch of perfection than it had ever before reached. Otherwise, they had not much in common, but Liszt's admiration for Paganini induced him to transcribe some of his brilliant violin studies as pieces for the pianoforte. In that form, too, they are extremely difficult to play, demanding the utmost skill from the performer.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
