: ' UP IN THE MORNING EARLY'

Exercises for men
The arrangements for ' Up in the Morning Early' have been altered for the rest of the summer, making it a kind of ' free-for-all ', though in all probability it will return in the autumn to the former rigid division into special programmes for younger and older, men and women.
The new plan introduces a 'double-piano act', one pianist stressing the rhythm so necessary for those doing the exercises, the other playing an accompaniment that should provide pleasant early-morning listening for the lazier ones -or, more important, for those who must perforce ' stand by' during exercises that are unsuitable for them.

: FANNY BURNEY'S DIARY

A reading by Eric Gillett
Fanny Burney died one hundred years ago. She wrote a best-seller when she was twenty-five, and left one of the most entertaining diaries in the language. She knew well many of the most famous men of the day-there are amusing sidelights in the diary on Burke, Sheridan, Garrick, Boswell, Reynolds, and Johnson, and many more-and her account of Brussels during the Waterloo campaign makes particularly interesting reading today.
The diary and letters of Madame D'Arhlay (her married name) were published after her death in the years 1842-6.

: MOISEIWITSCH

plays the Fantasy in C, Op. 17, by Schumann Schumann 's Fantasy was composed in 1836 and is dedicated to Liszt. The poetic basis is described by Schumann himself in a letter to
Clara Wieck , who later became his wife : ' I have finished a Fantasy in three movements, which I sketched down to the details in June, 1836. I do not think I ever wrote anything more impassioned than the first movement ; it is a profound lament about you.'

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.
