: SCHUBERT

String Quartet in A minor played by the Melsa Quartet
In a letter to one of his friends, written about the time when he was composing the A minor String Quartet, Schubert says that he is ' the most unhappy and wretched creature in the world '. The first movement is, perhaps, rather melancholy in mood, but at the same time it has its moments of brightness. , The slow movement is based on a theme from the ' Rosamunde ' music, which is treated meditatively and lyrically. The Minuet is reminiscent of the composer's songs. The last movement has a lightness of touch and happiness of feeling that serve as an excellent contrast to what has gone before.

: OSCAR RABIN

and his Band with Harry Davis , featuring Beryl Davis , Diane, Alan Dean , Bobby Young , and Eddie Palmer with his novachord
Oscar Rabin 's Band is famous for many things ; its all-round excellence ; its regular singers, Diane and Beryl Davis ; and the compering by Beryl's father, Harry Davis.
Oscar Rabin himself is one of the most self-effacing band-leaders before the public. On stage engagements he plays bass saxophone and sits in with the band. But the organisation behind the band is his special triumph. Many members have been with the band for years, some even for the whole sixteen years of its existence.

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.
