: The Philpott File The Entertainers

A series of three film reports by Trevor Philpott
3 : Two Players in the Music Market
The concert soloist is possibly the loneliest travelling showman of them all; and at the top end of the scale, probably the best paid. But he has to satisfy the most devoted and most critical audiences of them all. It's a fiercely competitive world, and for every one highly paid star there are hundreds of devoted musicians who fail to earn even an ordinary living on the concert stage.
This film compares the working lives of two soloists: Henryk Szeryng (left) is already at the top; Allan Schiller is still in the thick of the struggle for survival.

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.
