Thou Judge of quick and dead Before Whose bar severe,
With holy joy, or guilty dread, We all shall soon appear.
Do Thou our souls prepare For that tremendous day,
And rill us now with watchful care, And teach our hearts to pray.
0 may we thus insure A lot among the blest
And watch a moment to secure
An everlasting rest. (C. Wesley)

: The Trapp Singers of Salzburg

Directed by Franz Wasner in Madrigals and Folk Songs.
The Trapp Singers are all members of one family, consisting of the leader, Captain Georg von Trapp (an ex-officer in the Austrian Navy), his wife, five daughters, and two sons. Before they turned professional, they were in the habit of singing together for their own amusement during the long winter evenings. Finally, they entered a folk-song competition at Salzburg and carried off the first prize, and they then decided to turn professional. They specialise in sixteenth and seventeenth-century unaccompanied part-songs and in German and Tyrolese folk songs.

S
Natan Milstein is a young Russian violinist who was born at Odessa in 1904 and studied first in his native city under Professor Atoliarski, and later in Petrograd under Leopold Auer. In 1925 Milstein left Russia. Forced to abandon his Guadagnini, he arrived in Berlin without a violin, without money, without connections. It was only a short time, however, before a guarantor appeared for a debut concert, a patron with a Stradivarius for him to play on. Milstein's first Berlin appearance definitely established him as one of the first talents of the new generation. From Germany he went to France and afterwards toured the whole of Europe and America with great success.

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.

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