: Cricket: Third Test

The Cornhill Insurance Test Series
England v Pakistan from HeadingJey
The Test ground in Leeds has provided television viewers with many memorable moments. In the past 12 months, it was there that Geoff Boycott achieved his 100th first-class century in the Fourth Test against Australia last year, and, in May we witnessed a remarkable Roses match in which the spoils went to Yorkshire by an innings.
In the final Test of the current series, England could improve on the current situation through the exciting, youthful approach of David Gower and Ian Botham. Introduced by PETER WALKER

: The Songwriters

The songs reflect the times. The third programme in this series, celebrating 80 years of British popular music, harks back to the frantic syncopations of the Jazz Age, to tell the story of Noël Coward written by TONY STAVEACRE
' I couldn't help composing tunes even if I wished to, and ever since I was a little boy, they have dropped into my mind unbidden - and often in the most unlikely circumstances.'
His first published song was ' Forbidden Fruit', written when he was 17. After an inspiring visit to New York, he saw his name in lights for the first time in 1923-and enjoyed the satisfaction of hearing his own songs played in restaurants, and on the radio. Songs like ' Dance, Little Lady', ' Play, Orchestra, Play', ' Poor Little Rich Girl'. ' 20th Century Blues ', ' I'll See You Again ' - all destined to become classic songs of the 20s, a decade that Noel Coward seems, in retrospect, to personify.
The songs, the style, and the story of Noel Coward are re-created by The Songwriters' resident company:

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.
