The last in a series of programmes about the truth behind some of the popular ngures in British history.
CaptotM Ktdd Introduced by Magnus Magnusson
The real Captain Kidd was a merchant sea-captain, a man of property and an honoured citizen of New York. He was 50 when he was given the King's commission to hunt down pirates in the Indian Ocean. Two years later he died on the gallows in London, a convicted pirate himself.
MAGNUS MAGNussoN investigates the background to Kidd's fatal voyage. Was he guilty of piracy -or was his trial engineered at Westminster to suit the politicians of the day? And what happened to Kidd's treasure? Where is it and has it all been recovered?

: Sir Robert Mayer 100th Birthday Concert

Yesterday the founder of the Children's Concerts and of Youth and Music, benefactor of innumerable musical enterprises, celebrated his 100th birthday. Born in Germany, Robert Mayer , as a talented boy pianist, played to Brahms. Emigrating to England at 17, he later devoted himself, with his wife, to the encouragement and growth of this country's musical life. When she was Princess Elizabeth, HM The Queen attended his concerts for children. Now at 100, held in the highest esteem and affection, Sir Robert is still active and forward-looking. We present part of last night's concert given in Sir Robert's honour at the Royal Festival Hall in the presence of HM The Queen. HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.
The programme includes a Fanfare specially composed by Sir William Walton; Vaughan Williams' Serenade to Music, with 16 young solo singers; Bach's Concerto for Two Violins; the Hallelujah Chorus; and a spoken tribute from Sir Geraint Evans.
Soloists in the Bach: Yehudi Menuhin , Isaac Stern

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.
