: 'THE WHITE WHALE 1-5

A serial reading from Herman
Melville's ' Moby Dick ' by Geoffrey Tandy
Ishmael 'and the harpooner Queequeg have signed on with the whaler Pequod and they are waiting about Nantucket for her to sail.
Captain Peleg and Captain Bildad
(the chief owners of the ship) are in command while she is being fitted out, but nothing has been seen so far of Captain Ahab, who will command her at sea. All that Ishmael knows of him is from vague insinuations. and that since his last voyage he has kept to his home in sinister circumstances.
In this instalment he is to learn more of his captain and eventually to put to sea.

: Gramophone Records D 'COMPOSERS' OPINIONS'

Brahms v. Wagner
Presented by Helen Henschel
Although Brahms did not really approve of Wagner's music, he was, especially in middle and later life, very tolerant towards it. On the other hand, Wagner, who had few good words to say about any of his contemporaries, was never tired of showering contempt and invective upon Brahms. For instance, on being shown a score of Brahms's ' Song of Triumph ', he dismissed the work as ' Handel, Mendelssohn, and Schumann swathed in leather'.

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.
