'Enigma' Variations
One of the most beautiful of Elgar's works is the ' Enigma ' Variations. The title ' enigma ' refers to ' another and larger ' theme (a well-known' tune) which if played in conjunction with the present theme and the subsequent variations fits perfectly. More than one student of Elgar's music claims to have solved the enigma.
These variations are dedicated ' To my friends pictured within ', and, consequently, each variation is prefaced with the initials or nickname of the friend 'pictured '. Elgar's own wish, however, was that the work should stand simply as a ' piece ' of music.
A Dissatisfied Composer
Tchaikovsky began the writing of his third orchestral suite at the end of April, 1884. During this time he was keeping a diary in which he noted from day to day the development of his work. It appears to have cost him a considerable amount of trouble, and many times he was dissatisfied with the progress he was making. It was completed at the beginning of July and first performed some time later at St. Petersburg under Hans von Bulow. The Theme and Variations form the last movement of the Suite.

: 'Snapdragon' A Comic Operetta

by ASHLEY STERNE and A. A. THOMSON
Lyrics by A. A. Thomson
Music by Ashley Sterne
Characters in order of their appearance Churls, Courtiers, Wedding Guests and Others
The action takes place in and around the capital city of the Kingdom of Cafetaria, and the time is Once Upon ...
The BBC Revue Chorus and The BBC Theatre Orchestra,
Conducted by Mark H. Lubbock
Produced by Archie Campbell
'Snapdragon' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 9.0
This note is out of a letter from A. A. Thomson :
'It is a fairy tale called SnapDragon, and has the usual trimmings -prince, princess, and dragon, etc. But so far from being flippant, it presents a serious study in dragon-psychology, and as Horace Kenney is playing the dragon, you can tell how serious that is ! '

: Twelve Months Back

A Radio Retrospect of 1936 Produced by LAURENCE GILLIAM
The past year. How full it has been! King George's funeral, two Proclamations ; the inauguration of Television, American elections, the launching of the Queen Mary, the Olympic Games. The Boat Race, Test Matches, the Davis Cup, the Cup Final ; the Crystal Palace fire. The passing of famous men-Allenby, Kipling, Chesterton, Henry Lytton , Campbell-Black. There has been a new Viceroy of India, there have been outstanding events in trade, industry, and politics.
And all is to be told, and visualised and heard again, in this radio retrospect of 1936, with material drawn from over a hundred records which have been broadcast in the course of the past year.

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.
