: ROMANCE IN CLASS CASES

' Handel's Own Harpsichord
Alan Ivimey
One day in 1852 a piano-tuner of Winchester sold an old, worn-out-looking harpsichord to a British firm of piano manufacturers.
That old instrument, which once belonged to Handel himself, is now in the Victoria and Albert Museum. On the way to the room where it stands in its glass case can be seen the splendid scarlet State Barge built for Frederick Prince of Wales in 1732. It was in noble craft like this that the court of George I listened to Handel's Water Music, and it was quite probably on this harpsichord that the music was composed.
Alan Ivimey , author and journalist, is going to tell you about the harpsichord, and the barge, and about an old city shop-front which stands close behind it. He will broadcast again tomorrow, this time on the subject of beacons.

: Scenes from 'THE OLD LADIES'

by Rodney Ackland
Adapted from the novel by Hugh Walpole with Mary Jerrold as Lucy Amorest
Jean Cadell as May Beringer
Edith Evans as Agatha Payne
The action takes place in an old house in Pontippy Square, Polchester
Production by John Richmond
The Old Ladies, which was first produced at the New Theatre in 1935, deals with a phase in the life of three elderly residents of a Polchester boarding-house. Those who think that the common human emotions are dead in the very old will find much to disillusion them in this story of the private hopes and fears of three very much alive people. Mary Jerrold, Jean Cadell, and Edith Evans are all playing the original parts that they took at the New Theatre.

' East in Western Dress'
The exotic music of Asia has long exercised a peculiar fascination on European composers. It has attracted them and they have wanted to incorporate it, or some of its features, in their own work ; but they have always been checked by the sheer impossibility of reconciling the totally dissimilar musical systems of East and West.' Consequently Western attempts at Oriental music are at best a compromise and often only a convention. Mozart's ' Turkish music', for instance, is purely conventional, while Weber and Hoist at least based their music on genuine Arabian and Japanese melodies.

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.
