THE BBC CHORAL SOCIETY
Handel touched in turn the highest mark of success and the lowest level of failure. He had powerful friends and equally powerful enemies, but his great strength was his own indomitable spirit. Like the proverbial Englishman, Handel never knew when he was beaten. When his sight began to fail, at first he was crushed under the blow, but his powerful will and dogged courage soon asserted themselves. He sent for an amanuensis and once again took up the threads of his work with increased energy. He practised and played his harpsichord for hours on end, and insisted upon playing the organ in performances of his oratorios. He played from memory and extemporised: giving sound to that wonderful music endlessly passing through his mind. He even played concertos at Covent Garden. And the crowds came in their thousands to enjoy the emotional spectacle of the blind old Titan defying Fate.
Handel did not write for immortality ; he wrote for the pleasure of a society willing to pay for musical entertainment that was graceful and dignified in bearing. Yet Handel achieved immortality because he possessed the genius that transcends the petty dictates of fashion.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
