: PORTRAITS FROM MEMORY

A series of talks by Bertrand Russell , o.M.
When Bertrand Russell went up to Cambridge in .the nineties, eccentricity throve among the dons. ' 'Incompetence, oddity. and even insanity were not objected to,' he says. ' Very good men flourished, and so did some who were not so good. But in spite of lunacy and laziness, it was « good place, where independence of mind couJd exist undeterred.' In the first of this new group of six talks Bertrand Russell recalls some of the more remarkable figures in the Cambridge of sixty years ago.

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

Maurice Cole (piano)
The theme of Brahms' Variations comet from the second book of Handel's suites for harpsichord. The Variations themselves, splendidly designed though they are for the piano and thoroughly characteristic of Brahms in their texture, reflect something of the breadth and optimism of Handel himself. Brahms composed them in 1861, when he was twenty-eight. Two years later, when he met Wagner (for the first and only time), he played the Variations to him. ' This shows,' Wagner is said to have declared, ' what may still be done with the old forms provided that someone appears who knows how to treal them.'

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.
