Anthem (Richard Nicolson )
When Jesus sat' at meat in the Pharisee's house, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner: Mary called Magdalene. She brought an alabaster box of ointment, and stood behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears and wiped them with the hairs of her head. And kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. Jesus turned to the woman, and said: Thy sins are forgiven; thy faith hath saved thee, go thy way in peace.

: SCHUBERT

Fantasy in C, Op. 15
(The Wanderer) played by Maurice Cole (piano)
On three occasions, Schubert took one of his own songs as an inspiration for a large-scale masterpiece, producing the ' Death and the Maiden ' Quartet, the ' Trout ' Quintet, and the ' Wanderer ' Fantasy for piano, which was written in 1822, six years after the song from which it takes its name. In the ' Wanderer ' Fantasy, the rhythm of the opening phrase of the song dominates each of the four hnked sections of the work. It appears as the first section's fiery opening and again as its lyrical second theme; the slow second section is a set of free variations on the whole song-theme; the rhythm alone appears in the Scherzo section (translated into 3-4) and again in the main theme of the finale. The whole work, in fact, seems to grow out of one basic mot:f, anticipating the form of Liszt's symphonic poems.

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.
