THEATRE music varies T considerably in quality, but some cf it is very interesting, and certainly worth knowing about.

Mr. Toye, who is now music critic to The Morning Post, began writing on music nearly twenty years ago for Vanity Fair. He is a brother of the conductor, Mr. Geoffrey Toye.

: Sir OLIVER LODcE: Pioneers in Astronomy —III, Gclileo '

UNLIKE most astronomers, Galileo has left
'-' behind him not merely a monument of achievement, but a legend-the legend of his assertion of his theory after he had recanted it before the Inquisition.

To the houso of Wun-Tu comes Mee-Woo, seeking advice. He addresses the servant Li-Lo.

: Cecil Lewis: Old Rothenburg

In Rothenburg, that thousand-year-old city of Bavaria, as in the palace of the Sleeping Princess, time has stood still. The city stands with its walls and castles, its moats and bastions, but it seems to have been forgotten since the fifteenth century; and now wise people have embalmed it as a national treasure. Mr. Cecil Lewis will try to convey the atmosphere of this city of cobbled streets and deep gables - of the dusty palace of bygone princes and the log fires of hospitable inns.

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.
