Solo pianoforte, Charles Lynch from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
Although Roger Coke is only twenty-six, he has already written nearly forty works. His Second Symphony, dedicated to Rachmaninoff, is to be produced by Eugene Goossens at Cincinnati shortly.
This concerto, composed last autumn, is a frankly romantic work. ' If one looks for a spiritual forbear ', writes the composer, ' one is reminded of Rachmaninoff's First ; this, however, does not mean that the concerto is at all like anyone else's, or at all conservative or unadventurous in its idiom or procedure.' It is dedicated to
Charles Lynch.

: 'THE BORDEN MURDERS'

by Alwyn Whatsley
A dramatic reconstruction of a famous mystery, based on the authentic records introduced by Lt.-Commander
Rupert T. Gould
Production by John Richmond
The story of the Borden murders was first broadcast as the third of the ' Three Famous Mysteries ' series heard earlier in the year.
On August 4, 1892, an elderly
Massachusetts couple, Andrew Bor den and his wife, were found with their heads split open by hatchet blows in a house which contained nobody but their Irish servant and their daughter. The authorities had to investigate an apparently motiveless crime, and as the result of their investigations suspicion eventually fell on Lizzie, the Bordens' daughter.
She was, however, a church worker, and a woman of such unimpeachable character that no conviction was possible.

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.
