: Enrico Caruso

The story of a great singer
A programme of gramophone records, arranged by Ivor Morgan
This gramophone recital is intended to illustrate,by means of recordsand a spoken commentary, the life and art of Enrico Caruso (1873-1921). one of the greatest tenors of all time. He made his debut in Fautt at the Bellini Theatre, Naples, in 1894. His first real successes were in 1902, when he sang at Monte Carlo with Melba in Puccini's La Boheme and then came to Covent Garden and sang the part of the Duke in Verdi's Rigoletto. The late S.H. Pardon has said that 'In its combination of power and sweetness Caruso's voice has not been approached in our time. Moreover, the singer made the most of nature's abundant gifts. His breath control was so complete that he could deliver the longest phrase without any suggestion of being at the end of his resources'.

: Up Against It: Ordeal by Water

Dermot Moeran
Dermot Moeran is going to describe a widespread and disastrous flood which occurred in Pahang (on the east coast of Malaya) at Christmas time in 1926. Water covered the country to a depth of about 86 feet, and 96 inches of rain fell in fifteen days - 26 of which fell in one day. Four out of the five thousand acres of the rubber estate were entirely submerged, and as a result of this flood the jungle was killed for fifty mi!es around the post. All the loose material from the mountains was washed down and they were left absolutely bare rock. The speaker was cut oft for fifteen days and eventually was rescued through the roof of a hut by a canoe.

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.
