: Music on 2: Percy Grainger

Written by Basil Deane
with the voices of Ray Barrett as Narrator and Robin Ramsay as Percy Grainger

"Nothing of the sounds, nothing of the happenings of life should be forgotten. Of all bad habits the worst, to me, is to let resplendent things fade away"

Tonight's film biography has drawn on the vast collection of material Grainger made relating to his life, and it is the first detailed study of this unusual composer-pianist.
As a child in Melbourne, Percy Grainger (1882-1961) imagined a new musical sound which would be 'as free as the waves on the shore.' But his talent as a pianist prevented him from developing this 'free music' until he was in his 60s.

: Organ, Organ...

all the time... is the life of Peter Boorman, organist and choirmaster of the remote and, to some, romantic Cathedral of St David's.
He is a patient man, but in this film he takes this chance - on the day of the Patron Saint - to protest against the way in which the loveliest building in Wales tyrannises the craftsmen who serve it.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
