First a hard struggle up. into the Rocky Mountain Trench; then a 90-mile portage with 100-pound packs; and last, vast canyons and huge rapids, among them the dreaded Hell's Gate Rapid that has drowned many.

: Elgar and the Orchestra

A music Workshop by Bernard Keeffe with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra leader ERICH GRUENBERG
It was not until 1899, when Elgar was 42, that the first performance of Enigma Variations revealed to the world a master-composer for the orchestra. Until then Elgar's life had been one long uphill struggle for recognition.
In this programme, filmed partly in the sweeping Malvern Hills of Elgar's homeland, BERNARD KEEFFE describes how, entirely self-taught and despite many drawbacks, Elgar achieved a unique orchestral sound. He conducts illustrations ranging from the first piece Elgar ever had played in public to his remarkable virtuoso composition for orchestra, the Second Symphony.

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.
