: PETER WARLOCK

A recital of his songs by Roy Henderson (baritone)
The jolly shepherd Fair and true
Sigh no more, ladies The night Passing by Sleep
Pretty ring time My own country Jillian of .Berry
If nationality in music counts for anything at all, then Warlock counts for a great deal, for his songs are imbued with the very essence of the spirit of England, both his technique and his highly original idiom being firmly based on the great traditions of the Tudor period. In short, he is one of the most English of English composers.

10-Science
Julian Huxley and Collin Brooks
Julian Huxley , who is to talk to listeners with Collin Brooks in this notable series today, is probably our best-known biologist and one of our most distinguished men of science. Author of innumerable books, lecturer, broadcaster, Secretary to the Zoological Society of London (or the London Zoo) since 1935, he is perhaps even better known for his superlative work in supervising the filming of birds-for instance, that perfect picture, The Life Story of ' the Gannet.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
