: FALKMAN

Like so many other exponents of light music, Lionel Falkman had a classical training. His parents made sacrifices so that he could study the violin under Leopold Auer and Kalman Ronay , and at the age of seventeen he was musician enough to be first violin in the New Symphony Orchestra under Landon Ronald and first violin in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
His Apache Band specialises in the music typical of the Montmartre of happier days.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of the Queen's
Institute of District Nursing, by Ellaline Terriss (Lady Seymour Hicks )
The Queen's Institute of District Nursing, founded by Queen Victoria, of which Queen Mary is now patron, trains nurses to visit patients in their own homes in Great Britain and Ireland. It has been doing this work for fifty-theee years. Today 4,543 Queen's nurses and nearly 3,000 village and nurse-midwives are working under affiliated asociations throughout the country. These nurses are very hard worked in wartime because they are looking after patients evacuated from civilian hospitals to make room for war casualties, evacuated children sent to reception areas, and the families of men who have been called away to the fighting services.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

: BBC ORCHESTRA

Delius was greatly attracted by the theme of James Elroy Flecker 's Hassan, and as a result he undertook to write incidental music fur the play. In 1923 the play was beautifully staged by Basil Dean at His Majesty's Theatre and had a run of 281 performances.
The Serenade is one of the many striking numbers from Delius's exquisite music which has been made into a concert suite by his friend and amanuensis, Eric Fenby.
Kodak's short orchestral work
' Summer Evening ' dates from 1906, when he was twenty-four years old. He was not altogether satisfied with the work, and after its first performance he laid it aside. Later, however, he was encouraged to remould it, and the score bears a Latin dedication ' to Arturo Toscanini , who time after time urged me onward '.

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.
