Most countries have their own legends of the Accursed Huntsman who is condemned to ride for ever through the night as a punishment for some awful misdeed on earth. The original Wild Huntsman was Orion, but we meet him everywhere-in the North of Scotland, in Yorkshire, and in many parts of Europe. In Germany the legend is mixed up with the tale of Venus in her retreat, which Wagner uses in his opera Tannhäuser. The goddess, so they tell you, is now a hideous old woman, driving for ever in a coach and pair among the rabble which follows in the Wild Huntsman's train. Children are told that if they are wicked, they will go to her when they die, and fly shrieking through the night behind her. Cesar Franck 's music is based on the German legend of the story.
There are four scenes : the peace of Sunday morning with its joyful chants and bells pealing; the Hunt; the Count deserted by his followers, and the dreadful voice which condemns him for his sacrilege ; and last, the terrible hunting which has no end.

: Introductory Talk to Forthcoming Musical Events

Jan.-Mar., 1937
ADRIAN BOULT , D.MUS., LL.D.
Listeners may have noticed an increasing tendency on the part of the BBC to take them into its confidence and use the microphone to explain plans for future broadcasting. Tonight's talk by the Director of Music will be followed next week by three further talks in which the Director of Features and Drama and the Director of Religion will forecast their programmes for the next few months, and the Controller of Programmes will explain the extension and expansion of the Children's Hour.
Particularly interesting to music-lovers will be Dr. Boult's announcement tonight of plans for the six special concerts, beginning on January 3, which will in a sense replace the usual Winter Proms.

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.
