: A Programme of Cyril Jenkins's Music

Cyril Jenkins is one of the most prominent of Welsh musicians, both as composer and as propagandist. He is one of those whose aim it has been to bring into Wales the modem current of musical ideas that has tended on the whole to stop short at the border.
His own compositions are not of the kind that rank as 'modern' or 'modernistic' in the musical world generally. He expresses himself in the musical language of the age from Wagner to Elgar. Some of his works are on a large scale.

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
