In 1906 William Yeates Hurlstone died at the age of thirty. He had already proved himself a highly-gifted composer and one of the most promising of the younger British school. His first work was a set of Five Valses for piano which were published when he was only nine years of age. At eighteen he won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music, and he studied composition under Stanford for several years.
Hurlstone's fairy suite ' The Magic
Mirror' is based on the story of ' Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs '. It was written when the composer was twenty-six years of age and performed by Sir Henry Wood at the Proms and later at the Crystal Palace.

: BBC MEN'S CHORUS

BBC Orchestra
(Section C) led by Marie Wilson Conducted by Leslie Woodgate
Mary Jarred (contralto)
MARY JARRED, CHORUS, AND
Brahms's Rhapsody is based on three stanzas from Goethe's 'Harzreise a poem inspired by a journey in the mountains which Goeth undertook in the winter of 1777. The poem describes the loneliness of a man who has cut himself away from his fellow beings, but its sad and melancholv spirit turns to an optimistic note, which takes the form of a prayer to the Father of Love to let the lonely one catch an echo of the heavenly music.
Brahms's music is intensely emotional and dramatic, rising to a fine climax towards the end.

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.
