: LISZT FAVOURITES

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2
Liebestraum played by Leslie England (piano)
At a very early age Leslie England showed remarkable musical gifts and aroused the interest of several famous pianists, including Mark Hambourg and Paderewski, who encouraged him to take up the piano as a career. He came to London from Barrow-in-Furness when he was eight years old and studied privately for some years under various professors, until he succeeded in winning an open scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music. He made a tour in Scandinavia in 1927, and has twice toured South Africa-in 1925 and 1929.

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.
