Charles Avison (1710-70) was born at Newcastle-on-Tyne, and studied music in Italy. On his return to England he became a pupil of Geminiani. In addition to being the organist at St. Nicholas, Newcastle, Avison made a considerable reputation as a scholar and litterateur. His compositions included fifty concertos for string orchestra, a number of string quartets and trios, and three volumes of sonatas for two violins and harpsichord.

: ' In your Garden'

C. H. MIDDLETON
It is not sufficient for the gardener to think of today and leave tomorrow to take care of itself; if he did, there would be no flowers in his garden. The wallflowers of spring, the sweet Williams of summer, were all grown from seeds sown a year ago. And if there is to be colour in your garden from the delightful and irreplaceable flowers next spring and summer, you must get on with the sowing now.
R. Hay , whom C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone to give this talk on biennials, is the son of T... Hay, Superintendent of the Royal Parks. The son is connected with a famous firm of seed-growers and gave a talk on annuals in February last.

(Section A)
Chorus Master, LESLIE WOODGATE
GLADYS RIPLEY (contralto)
This is a setting for contralto solo, chorus and orchestra, of a poem by Arthur O'Shaughnessy. It sets forth how the makers of music and the dreamers of dreams are a real force in the world, conquering crowns and even trampling kingdoms down. A striking feature of the music is that the composer has introduced Into it at various points quotations from some of his own earlier works. Traces of his two symphonies, of the ' Enigma' Variations, The Dream of Gerontius, and many others can be heard by the attentive listener who knows them.

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.
