2—' Adventure by Moonlight'
Produced by Herbert Smith
What is the shining something that Rickie spotted far down in the cool green depths of Semerwater? The Wandering Minstrel seems oddly excited about it and yet surely he cannot know the old legend that Mary Mowbray has just told to Judith during their walk to see' the Carlow Stone and the Mermaids. Old Harland Metcalfe might have the answer, but didn't he slam the door of Semerwater House in their faces? Or did he?

Leonard Bernstein is the most versatile of the younger American composers: he has written two symphonies, ballet music, film scores, and Broadway musicals (including West Side Story). In addition he is at present chief conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. His Clarinet Sonata is an early work, written in 1942, when he was twenty-four.

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.
