: 'THE REDISCOVERY OF RICHARD WILSON '

Isaac J. Williams
(From Welsh)
Richard Wilson , the great classical landscape painter (1714 to 1782), was an original member of the Royal Academy, with which he exhibited until 1780. In spite of his repute, which was considerable even in his own day, he experienced extreme poverty. Many of his pictures are to be seen in the National Gallery and other great galleries.
As Keeper of the Department of Art at the National Museum of Wales, - the speaker organised a notable exhibition of Wilson's works at the National Eisteddfod of 1937

: WHAT EVERY LISTENER KNOWS

Sir Stephen Tallents ,
Controller, Public Relations
The BBC wants to know what programmes listeners enjoy most, and at what times they can best listen. But this is not a simple matter. Every listener knows what he likes, and when he is free to listen. But there are millions of listeners in the country, and nearly as many different tastes and daily time-tables as there are listeners.
New ways have lately been devised by the BBC for taking listeners into its counsels. Tonight Sir Stephen Tallents is to have a word with listeners about them.

: Hickory House

A Programme of Dance Music from New York by Joe Marsala and his Chicagoans
Compere, Alistair Cooke
Joe Marsala's Band is the only band in New York playing in the old Chicago style. It is surprising how many of the great ones have wanted to join his band. All sorts of people drop into his Sunday Swing Sessions and beg to play.
Today's programme, which is being compered by a man who was one of the most successful of British broadcasters before he went to America, has been specially arranged for the BBC. Among numbers that are to be played will be "Blues in B flat" and "Singin' the Blues", and, it is hoped, "Muskrat Ramble", "Jazz Me Blues", and "‘Clarinet Marmalade".

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.
