* The Wind in the WUlows by Kenneth Grahame
An illustration by Ernest H. Shepard from The Wind in the Willows ' (Methuen)
Arranged for broadcasting in eight instalments by May Jenkin
1— 'The River Bank '
Production by Josephine Plummer
' The Mole had been working very hard all the morning, spring-cleaning his little home — till he had dust in his throat and eyes, and splashes of whitewash all over his black fur, and an aching back and weary arms. Spring was moving in the air above and in the earrh below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its sp;ria of divine discontent and longing. It was small wonder, then, that he suddenly flung down his brush on phe floor, said: "Bother. O blow! Hang spring-cleaning! and bolted out of the house without even waiting to put on his coat.'

: CITY OF BIRMINGHAM SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

(Leader, Norris Stanley )
Conductor, Rudolf Schwarz
One of a series of international concerts organised by Radio Wien to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the death of Schubert
Sullivan has a special claim to be represented in this programme, since he showed his love for Schubert's music in the most practical way by going to Vienna with Sir George Grove , in 1867, and there helping to discover the manuscript parts of the whole of the music of Rosamunde. His Overture in dance rhythms was written for the Birmingham Festival of 1870. Checkmate, a finely dramatic ballet suggested by a game of chess (with the Red Knight as hero and the Black Queen as femine fatale), contains some of Sir Arthur Bliss 's most vivid and memorable music.
Schubert's ' Little ' Symphony in C, so called to distinguish itfrom his great ninth Symphony in the same key, was composed during the winter of 1817-18 when he was twenty-one years old. Its general character is gay and light-hearted.

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.
