: GERMAN ENIGMA

A programme of gramophone records presented by Scott Goddard
The effect of music on the German people is puzzling for anyone who tries to connect that nation's musical past with her present political state. Such a person may ask how is it that a people who were brought up on the superb things of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, the exquisite loveliness of Schubert and Brahms, the splendid dramatic music of Wagner, could swallow whole the creed of the Nazis? If we feel that the political vices of today are a flagrant condemnation of what were held to be the artistic virtues of yesterday (which is pretty much what the Nazis say), then for us here there does exist a German Enigma.

: 'IN BELMONT IS A LADY....

A romantic chronicle from Shakespeare's comedy
' The Merchant of Venice '
Arranged and produced by Peter Creswell with Fay Compton as Portia
(by permission of Emile Littler ) and Malcolm Keen as Shylock with the BBC Drama Repertory
Company *
Music composed by Richard Hall
' In Belmont is a lady richly left, and she is fair, and, fairer than that word, of wondrous virtues.' So Bassanio described Portia and provided the title for this romantic chronicle from The Merchant of Venice.
Fay Compton and Malcolm Keen will be acting in Shakespeare together not for the first time, for Keen played the King in Hamlet with John Barrymore at the Haymarket in 1925, and Fay Compton was Ophelia in the same production. They played the same parts again in the all-star production of Hamlet at the Haymarket six years later. Their Portia and Shylock will be eagerly awaited by many listeners tonight.

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.
