Hurlstone
William Yeats Hurlstone was born at West Kensington in 1876 ; published his first compositions at the age of nine; studied at the Royal College of Music under Stanford, Dannreuther, Walford Davies , and other distinguished musicians; suffered all his short life from ill-health; and died in 1906. In those thirty years, however,
Hurlstone produced a small quantity of fine work-mostly chamber music -that amply justifies the inscription of Schubert's epitaph on his own tombstone: Music hath here entombed rich treasure but still fairer hopes.'
Of Hurlstohe's orchestral works, these fourteen Variations, first performed at a Patron's Fund Concert in 1904, are the most important. The influence of his favourite master, Brahms, is perceptible, and in the finale that of Richard Strauss.
Leo Weiner
Leo Weiner was born in Budapest in 1885 and studied during the years 1901-6 at the Landesakademie, where he later became a professor. Most of his compositions are in the form of chamber music, with which he has made a considerable name for hrnself. His String Qnartet in F sharp minor won the Coolidge Prize in 1921.

: 'ON TREK'

Devised by Josef Marais
Words and Music by Diggenhof and
Marais with Herbert Cameron as Rhino, the Old
Pioneer
Josef Marais as Lawrence, the Rhodesian Farmer
Jerry Gerrard as Piet, the Cape
Agricultural Student
Hlubi (himself), the Zulu Boy and Josef Marais and his Bushveld Band
Dialogue by Peter Downe
Produced by George Barker
During this second broadcast in a series which follows the trek North-wards to Rhodesia of three men-Rhino, an old pioneer, Lawrence, a Rhodesian farmer, and Piet, a Cape agricultural. student who is going to work on the latter's farm-listeners will hear the mbira, a native instrument used as accompaniment to a solo voice. This evening's route will take the travellers past rocks on which bushmen's paintings hundreds of years old are to be found, in colour, painted by nobody knows whom ; and, as listeners will probably hear, there are some odd wayside adventures awaiting them.

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.
