: RUGBY UNION FOOTBALL

Leicester v. The Barbarians
A commentary on the second half of the annual match by H. B. T. Wakelam from the Welford Road Ground,
Leicester
This match is an annual event of no little importance in the Rugby football world, bringing together, as it does, two sides of first-class players. The Leicester XV is one of the crack teams in the Midlands, and the Barbarians are composed entirely of Internationals and other Rugby players of the first water. The Barbarians make two tours each year, the one against Midland teams, and the other against tne Welsh sides of Penarth, Cardiff, Swansea, and Newport later in the season.

: CESAR FRANCK

Prelude, Aria, et Finale played by Egerton Tidmarsh (pianoforte)
Cesar Franck 's Prelude, Aria, and Finale is to all intents and purposes a sonata with the customary three movements. It was written more or less as an experiment, to get away from sonata form, which Franck considered was being overdone. He therefore wrote an equivalent work and used the forms of Bach's day. It is undoubtedly one of Franck's best works, being both intellectually and emotionally satisfactory. One feels that he has successfully applied a romantic technique to seventeenth-century forms.

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.
