: 'The Wrecker'

A Mystery of the Sea by ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON and LLOYD OSBOURNE
Adapted for Broadcasting by MICHAEL TALBOT
Produced by PETER CRESWELL
IT is told of Mozart's two jolly quartets for pianoforte and three strings that they formed part of a contract with the publisher, Hoffmeister in Leipzig, but that after they were issued, the public complained that they were too difficult and refused to buy them. Mozart accordingly, with the good nature which was characteristic of him, released Hoffmeister from any obligations under the contract. If the story is true, the public has long ago changed its mind, and for generations both quartets have been favourites alike with players and listeners, this in G Minor specially so.

: Dr. R. N. SALAMAN : 'The History and Economic Influence of the Potato '

DRAKE, it is still commonly supposed, first introduced the potato into England, or was it John Hawkins ? Or was it the returned colonists whom Drake had sent to America ? And was it, indeed, not England at all but Ireland that first knew the joys of potato-eating ? These are dark mysteries, and perhaps Dr. Salaman this evening will elucidate them. For the potato has an ancient and worthy history, and one highly interesting to follow.

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.
