Although at the beginning of the century the music of Grieg enjoyed great popularity and he was generally considered to be one of the great figures of the second half of the nineteenth century, except for a handful of his works, such as the ' Peer Gynt' suites, he is unjustly ignored today.
Some of his best work is seen in the smaller forms. His songs at their best may well bear comparison with the finest of the great German lieder composers.

: Up the Poll

A musical comedy of mass observation Book and lyrics by Allan MacKinnon and Jack House. Music by Gerald Shaw
Cast with the Cavendish Three, Revue Chorus, and BBC Variety Orchestra, conducted by Charles Shadwell. Produced by Robin Russell and Eric Fawcett
This radio musical comedy is Ruritania up to date - Mass Observation, aeroplanes, and Fleet Street, in place of couriers, coaches, and proclamations. In short, behind the constitution of Morania stands firm the financial support of 'Moranian Molasses'.
All the human ingredients of this kind of traditional musical comedy are firmly in their place - the hero in one camp, the heroine in the other, spying, plotting, revolution, and, of course, inevitably, that sort of love which both unites lovers and smooths out plots.

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.

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.
