Benjamin Britten comes from Lowestoft, where he was born in 1913. At the age of nine he-began studying composition under Frank Bridge , and a short time later took piano lessons from Harold Samuel. Britten then entered the Royal College of Music, and became the pupil of John Ireland.
He has already established himself as one of the most gifted composers of the younger British school. Many listeners will remember his music specially composed for ' Hadrian's Wall ' and other radio feature programmes.

: A RECITAL OFENGLISH SONGS

by Sinclair Logan (baritone)
Sinclair Logan, singer, organist, teacher, and composer, was born in Cheshire in 1897. He is partly Scottish and partly Irish, and was educated at Worcester College and the Royal Normal College for the Blind. His first public appearances after the war were with Lady Pearson's Concert Party, which collected so many thousands of pounds for St. Dunstan's. He has since sung a great deal, as well as teaching, and is altogether a very busy man. He contrives to make one unaware of his handicap of sightlessness. Indeed he has made himself independent of it, travelling alone to wherever his profession calls him, even spending his holidays climbing in the Alps.

: 'THE VORTEX'

by Noel Coward with Athene Seyler as Florence Lancaster
Cast, in order of speaking
Produced by Barbara Burnham
This is the first of a series of representative plays of the last twenty years. The Vortex was produced in 1924, and is entirely representative of that period. Those who remember the first production will no doubt recall the shock experienced by the theatre-going public at this bitterly audacious play.
The Vortex created something of a precedent, dealing as it did with the war's social aftermath, in which nerves and morals were strained to breaking-point, and a frank hedonism began to pervade society. While theatregoers in recent years have become fairly accustomed to neurosis on the stage, they will no doubt find it interesting to compare today's treatment of the subject with that of Noel Coward in the play that established his name fifteen year* ago.

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.
