IN this country it used to be said of Brahms' songs that they were difficult* and ungrateful to sing, and that ho evidently had ho sympathy with the voice as an instrument of music. It is complete nonsense, as has long ago been realized; it is, indeed, difficult to believe that anyone ever thought it true. Almost more than any other of the great composers, he has drawn on folk music for his songs, some times taking a folk tune and setting it' very simply and eloquently with his own accompaniment, sometimes developing a fragment of folk tuno into a melody of his own, and sometimes inventing melodies so simple and natural that they can easily bo mistaken for folk songs. They range through a very wide field of emotion and expression ; many of the best are love songs.
Only once or twice did he choose .to set narrative ballads; more often he delights in presenting a mood of Nature, the meditations of a. thoughtful spirit in the open air.

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.
