It was not until the age of twenty-nine that Beethoven attempted to compose in the form of the string quartet. The Six Quartets that make up Op. 18 are dedicated to Prince Lobkowitz. Slight in structure and design as compared with the noble quartets of his middle period and the great string quartets which were among the last things he wrote, these first six are full of melody, and all are so clear in form as to be easily followed and enjoyed.
In 1906 William Yeates Hurlstone died at the age of thirty. He had already proved himself a highly gifted composer and one of the most promising of the younger British school. Hurlstone's first work was a set of 'Five Valses' for piano, which were published when he was only nine years of age. At eighteen he won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music and studied composition under Stanford for several years. Among the best of Hurlstone's chamber works is this Phantasy for string quartet, which was awarded the first prize in the first of the Cobbett competitions in 1905.

Programmes ' From the Tarn to the Tap '
This programme is based on Talla Reservoir, which supplies the city of Edinburgh with water. Talla took ten years to construct, and it is long and deep enough to float an entire navy. It is 21 miles long, containing approximately 3,000,000,000 gallons of water, of which about 12,000,000 gallons flow along thirty-three miles of piping from Peeblesshire to Edinburgh every day. The programme will contain a flash-back to 1800 so that listeners will learn what a luxury water was in those days. Modern conditions will be described by John Bowman, President of the Institution of Water Engineers and Water Engineer for Edinburgh city.

Production by John Gough
One hundred years ago, five Glasgow cotton spinners were tried before the High Court of Justiciary in Edinburgh for the crimes of illegal conspiracy and murder. The trial is one of the most important in the history of trade unionism. Were the acts of these men the sporadic acts of individuals, or the calculated policy of an organised secret society?

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.
