Olive Groves is not only one of the most popular singers known to broadcasting, but easily the most versatile. As listeners must have observed, there is no kind of programme, in which music plays a part, in which she has not at some time or another appeared, and in which she does not excel; concerts, revues, musical comedies, musical plays, and vaudeville, and now, as a singer of lieder. Miss Groves is a musician of many parts, violinist, pianist, singer, and- won high distinction at the Royal Academy of Music in her student days. Her first broadcast was in 1926, and during the last seven years she has appeared before the microphone some three hundred times.

Franz Liszt , now that history has sifted his great merits from the chaff of sentiment and adulation, is recognised at his true value as one of the most profound influences of the nineteenth century. As a pianoforte virtuoso his fame rests ; he was in his day considered to be the greatest the world has yet produced, and there has since been found no reason to reverse that conviction. But all that belongs to the earlier part of his career, for he ceased to perform publicly, at least for his own gain, at the comparatively early age of thirty-six, and thereafter devoted himself to the cause of his art and his brother artists. He settled in Weimar and made that city in a few years an art centre of the world. Here it was that he championed the cause of Wagner and Berlioz, composed his best work, inspired through teaching and by encouragement many who were later to achieve fame in a world of art which Liszt himself had done a great deal to create, and sponsored an era of progress whose movement has increased in a ratio of acceleration maintained to this day.

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.
