An entertaining programme aimed at a younger audience is provided by this afternoon's concert, of which BBC1 is transmitting the first half live. Raymond Leppard conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Britten's ever-popular The Young Person Guide to the Orchestra, followed by Dohnanyi's charming
Variations on a Nursery Song. David Owen Norris , piano soloist in the Dohnanyi, comments: "I like musical jokes and this one, like all the best jokes, should not be given away. There can be nothing more important than a concert designed for a younger audience. My children - Barnaby, 6, and Josiah, 4 - will be there to share it. And the joke." Introduced by James Naughtie from the Royal Albert Hall in London.

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
