Gerald Moore (piano)
BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder
Conductor, Stanford Robinson
Narrator, Dennis Arundell
Mark Lubbock 's series of musical biographies, which have proved such popular broadcasts in the past, is continued this evening with one which should have a still wider appeal — that master - melodist Schubert. Among the music to be played by the Theatre Orchestra will be the first movement of the ' Unfinished ' Symphony, the Theme and Variations from the ' Trout ' Piano Quintet, the songs ' The Erl King ' and ' Serenade ', a selection of waltzes, and two well-known pieces from the opera Rosamunde.

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.
