: MOZART

Divertimento in E Flat (K. 563) played by members of the Dartington Hall Chamber Music Group (by permission of Dartington Hall)
Mozart put the finishing touches to this Divertimento ' of six pieces ' on September 27, 1788, about six weeks after the completion of the ' Jupiter ' Symphony. ' Each movement of this trio is planned on broad lines ', says Jahn, 'and worked out with the greatest - love and care, so that the trio—unquestionably one of Mozart's most admirable works-is a true " cabinet-piece " of chamber music. It is impossible to imagine anything more charming than the trio of the second minuet ' (i.e., the middle part of the fifth movement).

: Scottish Half-Hour 'BORDER PAGEANT'

Programme about Common Ridings and Festivals in Hawick, Selkirk, Peebles, Galashiels, Innerleithen, Langholm, and Lauder. Devised by George Burnett. Produced by Moultrie R. Kelsall
Hawick, Selkirk, Galashiels, Lauder, Langholm, and other towns of the Scottish Border are accustomed in peace-time to hold summer festivals, in which great attention is paid to past history. The war has of course necessitated modifications of these ceremonies, but they continue to be held. Their forms differ ; sometimes there is a straightforward riding of the burgh boundaries-a custom once observed as a protection against the pilfering of common land by neighbouring lairds. Peebles has its ' common riding ' combined with a youth festival which culminates in the crowning of the ' Beltane Queen'. Innerleithen celebrates ancient strife against the forces of darkness by ' burning the devil ' ; and so on. Before the war some aspects of these
Border Festivals were presented in the Scottish Regional programme. This arrangement is nowadays impracticable, but this evening George Burnett presents a composite programme in which* teams from Border towns will explain—no doubt with friendly rivalry—the main features of their respective ceremonies.

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.
