Admiral Sir William Goodenough, G.C.B., M.V.O.
(An electrical recording of a talk broadcast in the National programme on June 20)
Admiral Goodenough earliest memory of Lord Fisher is a memory of being taken by him to the circus as a small boy. He still remembers the excited amusement mingled with awe with which he heard Lord Fisher exchange jokes and repartee with the clown in the ring. It was of sterner and more important matters that Admiral Goodenough spoke on June 20, when he put before his listeners a description of the very complex character of a man to whom this country owes a great debt.

Act 2 of Verdi's Opera
'FALSTAFF' from the Festspielhaus,
Salzburg
The Vienna Philharmonic
Orchestra
Conductor, ARTURO TOSCANINI
(Act 3 will be broadcast at 9.20 tonight in the Regional programme)
Act 2 of Verdi's Falstaff consists of two scenes. Scene 1 is a room in the Garter Inn, where Falstaff, drinking deeply, soliloquizes on his gifts as a lady-killer and a diplomat. Mistress Quickly brings Falstaff a message from Mistress Ford bidding him to a rendezvous. Ford himself comes next and, under an assumed name, learns from Falstaff all that he wished to know. The next scene is the famous one of the linen basket, in which Falstaff is put and eventually gets emptied into the river, to everyone's delight.
Act 3, which is being broadcast in the Regional programme, also consists of two scenes. Scene 1 is outside the Garter Inn. Falstaff is beguiled into agreeing to meet the fair Alice once more, this time at the Oak of Herne the Hunter, in Windsor Park. When he is gone, the whole plot of make-believe fairies and sprites is hatched, which is to complete his discomfiture. The second scene takes place in the Forest of Windsor, where everything falls out as the conspirators had devised, except that Nanetta (the librettist's name for Shakespeare's Ann Page) is wedded to her chosen lover, Fenton, instead of to the husband approved by her father. That gives Falstaff a chance to laugh in his turn at Ford, and the opera comes to an end with a fugue on the theme that life is nothing but a great joke.

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.
