The Alexandra' Choir. London Philharmonic Orchestra (leader, Reginald Morley ), conducted by Sir Henry J. Wood
From the Royal Albert Hall, London
Sullivan's cantata The Golden Legend was first performed at the Leeds Festival in 1886, where it had an immediate and outstanding success. The libretto is a condensed version made by Joseph Bennett of Longfellow's poem, and tells the story Df the young Prince Henry who can be cured of a mysterious malady only by a maiden willing to die for his sake. Lucifer has a big hand in the plot, appearing first as a Friar and then as Brother Angelo , a monk with medical skill.

: The Debate Continues

Programme in honour of the House of Commons.
Written and produced by Louis MacNeice
Exactly a year ago today the Debating Chamber of the House of Commons was destroyed by enemy action. Tonight's programme is to commemorate, not so much that tragic event, but the long history of free debate that preceded it, and which still continues in the contemporary British scene. Here is a dramatic reminder that the 'Mother of Parliaments' is the protector and protagonist of freedom.
Throughout the programme you will hear dramatised scenes from the long story of the English Parliament, and, naturally enough, some of the more noteworthy utterances of great Parliamentarians of history.

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.
