(ZINKA MILANOV, KERSTIN THORBORG , HELGE ROSWAENGE , NICOLA MOSCONA,
THE BBC CHORAL SOCIETY)
The history of Verdi's Requiem goes back to the death of Rossini in 1868. Verdi suggested that thirteen eminent Italian composers should collaborate in a Requiem, one number to be written by each. A grand project, but it led to nothing ; when all the sections were assembled it was found that they would have made a most unwieldy work. The idea was abandoned, but five years later the death of the poet Manzoni again inspired Verdi with the idea of a Requiem, and he used in it the ' Libera me ' that had been his own contribution to the earlier scheme.

: LONDON SOUVENIRS’

Yvette Guilbert
No music-hall artist has ever quite rivalled the place of Yvette Guilbert , who first sang at the Empire, Leicester Square, when she was twenty, and who even now at the age of seventy-two is giving a series of recitals in London.
At one time Madame Guilbert was an annual visitor to London, appearing at the Haymarket Theatre in 1905, at the Duke of York's in 1906, at the Coliseum in 1910, 1911, 1913, and 1915, and at the Arts Theatre, where she gave recitals, in 1928, and 1929. Tonight she is going to give her memories of the interesting people she has known in many walks of life.

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.
