: CHOPIN

Twelve Studies. Op. 25 played by Iso Elinson (pianoforte)
A hundred years ago people hardly thought of a Study as a piece for concert performance. A Study, as its name implies, was a technical exercise. Some particular feature in which pianists were likely to need practice would be taken and a little piece written round that feature, using it over and over again. What Chopin did may be stated in a few words. He took the dry exercise and turned it into poetry.

: Dancing Time

with Victor Silvester and his Ballroom Orchestra

Victor Silvester, winner of a world dancing championship, is broadcasting fortnightly programmes of music for dancing. He has been associated with the Dancing World since he was demobilised at eighteen (he had joined the Army at the unripe age of fourteen). He has Gerry Moore and Eddie Macauley on pianos, Charles Stinelly on alto sax, Oscar Grasso as violinist, George Senior, bass, Ben Edwards, drums, and Rico de Stefano, piano accordion.
In every broadcast Silvester features a new dance, the swing step. 'Rhythmic Melody' is the key-note of his programmes.

Appeal of Bach's Music Bach is unique in that every other great composer from Haydn to Hindemith has paid homage to the qualities of his genius. At the same time he is no less a god to the plain man, which is a remarkable tribute to the varied and powerful appeal of his music as music, for it is quite uncoloured with those personal and romantic associations which have made Beethoven's C minor Symphony a symbol of 'Fate' and Chopin's Nocturnes a confession of 'Love'.
Popularising Bach
Sir Donald Tovey has called Bach 'a spectator of all musical time and existence'. He came at the end of a great period and summed up all that it stood for. It was because of this that his music found little favour with his younger contemporaries and immediate successors. For nearly a hundred years after his death the greater part of his works lay buried and forgotten. Their style was considered old-fashioned. It was not until 1829, when Mendelssohn revived the St. Matthew Passion, that Bach really came into his own. Of late years the Proms have undoubtedly done more to popularise Bach in England than any other concert organisation.

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.
