Tatiana Makushina (soprano)
Berkeley Mason (piano)
Tatiana Makushina , who specialises in Russian and French songs, has been heard on the air in this country for many years.
When Rachmaninoff was in London he expressed a wish to hear her sing some of Medtner's songs. ' I shall never forget him seated deep in a big armchair', she says, 'and listening to Medtner's songs, which I sang with all my heart and soul, and asking for more. I sang about twelve. It was an unforgettable afternoon.'

(piano)
Andante and Allegro (from James
Nares Lesson for harpsichord in B flat)
James Ching began his musical studies at the Royal Academy of Music at the age of seven, taking piano under Tobias Matthay and composition under Frederick Corder. ' At eleven years of age ', said Mr. Matthay, ' he played the Bach Fantasia and Fugue like a virtuoso '.
He won an open organ scholarship to the Royal College of Music, and went on from there to Oxford in 1920 to take the degrees of Mus.Bae. and B.A. In 1925 he made his debut as a solo pianist, giving recitals and later appearing as soloist at the Proms.

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.
