: NORBERT WETHMAR TRIO

Norbert Wethmar , Belgian musician, formed his Trio as a broadcasting unit very early in 1934, and his Quintet, which plays chamber music only, in the following year. The combination, one of the most competent of its kind on the air, makes a speciality of presenting light music of the very best class. Wethmar himself received his musical education at the Brussels Conservatoire, where he gained his Diploma of Capacity with the greatest distinction in 1910. After servmg in the Belgian Army for six years, including the whole of the last War, he came to London, and was very soon to be associated with the BBC when he became leader of the Gershom Parkington Quintet.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
