: A Listen and Learn Series: Starting Spanish: 9: An Old Spanish Song

Basil and Dorothy Street learn that they cannot get along without understanding the double negative and the personal 'a', and that they cannot get away with thinking that flamenco singing is 'typically Spanish.' The lesson begins with a heated argument in George's study in Hampstead, and ends with a gentle love song of Renaissance Spain.

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.
