: BRAHMS

Piano Trio in C, Op. 87 played by the Long-Kersey-White-head Trio
The second of Brahms's three piano trios, in C major, was written in 1882 and represents Brahms at his greatest. All but the closely woven finale are large-scale movements worked out with superb imagination and richness of detail, and in its emotional range the Trio is not far short of all-embracing : feelings of mystery, pathos, humour, passion, and exhilaration are evoked in this magnificent work.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Clarence Raybould
An English Rhapsody : Brigg Fair....Delius Delius 's ' Brigg Fair' is based on the beautiful lilting melody of an old Lincolnshire folk song, the words of which tell the story of the simple and true love of a country lass and lad. He vows that should he prove false to her ' the green leaves they shall wither, and the branches they shall die The music sets out to evoke the emotions of the lovers and to give an impression of the quiet beauty of the countryside. It is in the form of a series of variations, which are characteristic of Delius's luscious, harmonic style and colourful orchestration

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.
