(Soloist, P.C. Cook)

Like more than one of the modern Russian composers, Rimsky-Korsakov knows something of the East at first hand. Listeners may very likely remember that his first important piece was actually written during a cruise in Eastern waters, where he was on duty as a naval officer, the career which he combined for a time with music.
This story of Sadko, which is in some sort a Russian version of the old Orpheus legend, attracted Rimsky-Korsakov more than once. It was the subject of one of his early poems, as well as of fhe opera, and the tale was made by him from the old Russian chronicles. In the opera, this song is sung by a tenor, although it is now often borrowed by sopranos; it is familiar, too, as an instrumental piece, and its dreamy, languorous melody lends itself well to performance on the violin, or, indeed, on almost any melodious instrument. In the opera it is a Hindu merchant who sings it, telling of his own country and of his home-sickness.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
