Opening Night from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co., Ltd.)
Music about London
As vividly descriptive as music may be of the many-sided life of a busy capital, the ' Cockaigne ' Overture sets before us first the crowds and the bustle of the streets, and soon there is an episode in more serious vein-London's dignity. The vivacious opening returns, and then we are told of two young lovers-a melody on the violins. Street urchins are portrayed by a merry doubling of the dignified theme, and the next episode is a Military Band, coming from a distance, and passing by with pompous step. Again, a little later, band music intrudes on the two young people -this time a street band, with a playful mockery of the military music. Then, in a quieter section, we are to imagine the lovers as having found a refuge where only far-off echoes of the streets can reach them. The themes, after the traditional development, are repeated, and the Overture closes with a reminder of the gay spirit in which it opened.
Merry Pranks
Till is not merely a legendary figure. He was born early in the fourteenth century and lived near the Harz mountains, in low Germany. He came of peasant stock and was wily, boorish, and class-prejudiced, but gifted with a remarkable wit and an irresistible love of fun. Till was a rogue, of course, but a merry one, and Strauss has given an ingenious picture of Till in his symphonic poem.
Roman Fountains
Respighi's three best known orchestral works all deal with his native city of Rome, with its fountains, its pines, and its church windows, so that flippant people talk of him as a ' Musical Baedeker ' to the city. The ' Fountains ' was the first of the three to appear, and is, not unnaturally, still the best known. It is in four movements, each of which describes for us in music one of the famous fountains, and the Suite takes us through the whole of a Roman 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.

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.
