From Brecon Cathedral
Hoist's Suite in E flat, a delightfully forthright and tuneful work, is the first of two suites that he wrote for military band; Gordon Jacob has arranged it lor fun orchestra. There are three movements, Chaconne, Intermezzo, and March, and since they are all founded on the same phrase, Hoist directed that they should be played without a break.
For his Concerto for oboe and strings on themes of Pergolesi, Sir John Barbirolli has drawn on the eighteenth-century Italian composer's Stabat Mater , his act of twelve sonatas for two violins and bass, and an aria, ' Se tu m'ami.'

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
