: The White Whale

A serial reading from Herman Melville's 'Moby Dick' by Geoffrey Tandy
The Pequod is still in the Indian Ocean. In this instalment she meets with the German whaler - the Jungfrau of Bremen, who up to then has caught nothing. The captain borrows lighting oil from the Pequod, and while he is on his way back to the ship a pod of whales is sighted. The Pequod's and the Jungfrau's boats race to the pod, and there is great rivalry which results in the Pequod getting one whale and the German ship none.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Irene Scharrer (pianoforte)
Philip Sainton's ballet The Dream of a Marionette was first heard at a Promenade concert in 1929. The scenario for the actual ballet was written by the composer himself. It is a fantastic, whimsical story flavoured with humour, tenderness, and a gentle irony. It concerns the story of a marionette in love with a happy fairy, but he has no soul and she will not respond to his advances.
The music is for the most part light in character, though it has its serious and expressive moments.

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.
