When Jean Baptiste Weckerlin realised that he was never likely to make a great deal of money by adding to the world's stock of original compositions, he began digging into the past and bringing to light a rich treasure of old French songs—chansons populaires, rondes, and folk-songs of every description. He dusted and polished these very carefully, gave them charming accompaniments, and published volume after volume, thereby rendering a very great service to France and incidentally to singers. Weckerlin was born in 1821 and lived for nearly ninety years, digging, dusting and polishing most of the time. And will he not come again? (Traditional, from Hamlet) How should I your true love know? (Traditional, from Hamlet)
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.
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.
