by Winifred Brown
A pair of spectacles lying on a shop counter, a dirty apron thrown over a stool, a half-eaten meal, an unfinished mug of tea-temporary absence is. the keynote in Mr. C. M. Mitchell's recreation of the past at Kirkstall Abbey Museum in Leeds.
Winifred Brown talks about his full-scale reconstruction of period streets and shops and describes the uncanny sense of the past they evoke.

: LONDON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

(Leader. Henry Datyner )
Conducted by John Coulling
John Mayer , who is Anglo-Indian by birth, studied at the Royal Academy of Music and then joined the violins of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
The ' Raga Jayajavanti ' is the third movement of his Dance Suite, 'Ramayana,' for full orchestra. The Raga is an Indian musical scale, of which there are 132, the basis of all Indian classical music. Jayajavanti is a name derived from the musical scale called Jijavanta, after the companion to the God of Love. ' Dressed in yellow, his forehead elaborately marked with saffron, Jijavanta plays charmingly his heart-enchanting flute.' There is no harmony; the music is entirely rhythmic or melodic, apart from a constant drone accompaniment.

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.
