Hullo. F:rst of all, I must make it clear that the Cowes in the tide are not horned beasts that give milk. This Cowes is, of course, in the Isle of Wight and is the headquarters of sailing activities on the south coast of England. There's always a lot going on there during the summer, and in early August there are ten days of continuous yacht raoing. This is called Cowes Week. When Uncle George told us that he had entered Rag Doll for a lot of races at Cowes we were very excited ...' (Mary Green)

: HOW'S THAT?

by M. R. Ridley
Is it really wrong to split the infinitive? Can one say ' It's me '? M. R. Ridley talks about some of the phrases in our current speech that are frowned upon as vulgarisms, and puts forward the case for their defence but some of them, after due consideration, 'he, also, rejects).

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

Frederick Grinke (violin)
Kendall Taylor (piano)
Mozart Sonata in B ftait (K.454) Sonata in A (K.526)
The Sonata in B flat was written in 1784 for a concert given in Vienna by an Italian girl violinist. On the morning of the concert only the violin part had been written out; Mozart himself played the piano part, largely from memory, using the rough draft he had jotted down at the last moment.
The Sonata in A, written three years later, is in the same key as one of his finest piano concertos (K.488), the Clarinet Concerto, and the Clarinet 'Quintet; it has a close affinity with these works, sharing something of their mellowness and maturity. Deryck Cooke

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.

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