: ' MOODS MODERNISTIC'

Music for modems, featuring Jack Payne with his Orchestra,
Peggy Cochrane , Bruce Trent , and Stephane Grappelly. Produced bv David Miller
These ' Music for Moderns ' programmes set out to keep pace with the very latest fashions in up-to-date gay music-making. Of particular interest this evening will be a performance of the theme of Richard Addinsell 's ' Warsaw Concerto ', written in the first place for the film Dangerous Moonlight.
The concerto quickly took the popular imagination, and has proved one of the rare examples of a piece of film music that can stand on its own. Wherever the film was shown hundreds of people wrote demanding where the original concerto could be obtained.
Richard Addinsell has composed musical scores for many other popular British films, including Fire Over England, South Riding, The Amateur Gentleman, and Goodbye, Mr. Chips.

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.
