At the remarkably early age of twelve Lamond was appointed organist at Laurieston Parish Church. At seventeen, a credit to his masters, von Bulow and Liszt, he was giving his first important piano recitals in Berlin and Vienna, and a year later in London. He is recognised as one of the greatest living interpreters of the piano music of Beethoven ; but he is a fine player of the piano works of many other classical composers.

: R.A.F. STAFF PILOT

Some aspects of the work of the Staff Pilot, illustrated in commentaries from air and ground by Wynford Vaughan Thomas and Stewart MacPherson , in an outside broadcast from a Flying Training Command Station
The Staff Pilot has an important job of work to do. He plays a large part in the training of all classes of air crew, that is navigators, bomb aimers, air gunners, etc. The work is exacting and often monotonous. Bad weather does not necessarily mean a rest. At regular intervals he spends a period on night flying, which, in good weather, is1 more intensive than the ,night flying of the operation pilots.

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.
