Anthony Ashley Cooper. Seventh Earl of Shaftesbury, was one of the great figures of the nineteenth century. As a young man he was shocked by the sufferings of the poor and spent his whole life, both in and out of Parliament, fighting to improve their lot. By his efforts many social evils were swept away, including the terrible conditions in mines and factories, the sufferings of women and young children who worked in the coal mines, and the misery of the little ' climbing boys ' who served as apprentices to the chimney-sweeps. His story illustrates the saying of Christ: ' He hath sent me ... to set at liberty them that are bruised ' (St. Luke 4, v. 18).

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

Victoria de los Angeles
(soprano)
Ernest Lush (accompanist)
Edith Vogel (piano)
Victoria de los Angeles, the Spanish soprano, broadcast for the first time in this country two years ago, when she sang the part of Salud in Manuel de Falla's opera La Vida Breve. Of the songs by Granados that she is singing in tonight's recital, the last, ' Lament, or the maiden and the nightingale ' is well known in the piano version which Granados made and included in the first book of his ' Goyescas.' The first song, ' The Sorrowful Maiden,' is from a collection of tonadillas written in the old style. The recital ends with three of the Spanish folk songs from the set of seven that Falla arranged for voice and piano. Harold Rutland

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.
