IN THE QUEEN ELIZABETH HALL THE opening of the Queen Elizabeth Hall last month has, it would seem, effectively answered the call so often and so repeatedly voiced in the past for a hall in London suited to a wide range of concerts which call for greater intimacy than its neighbour, the Royal Festival Hall, can provide. One was immediately impressed at the inaugural concert by the fidelity and responsiveness of the Queen Elizabeth Hall's acoustics, and in particular by the natural support it seems to offer to singers.
This in itself is an encouraging augury for the series of eight weekly song recitals which the Music Programme is presenting in the new hall on Monday evenings at 5.45 during April and May. If you live or work near enough you will be able to attend some of these concerts, but in any event each recital is being recorded and can be heard in the Music Programme the next morning at 9.45.
The aim is to present a wide variety of programmes, and these will range from solo recitals to rather more conce

: THE CELTS

A series of eight broadcasts introduced by DR. ANNE ROSS
8: Breakdown and survival
In Wales the old Celtic order virtually ended in the sixteenth century, in Ireland in the seventeenth, and in Scotland in the eighteenth. The Celtic literary tradition then took on a more popular form, and today in Wales, Ireland, and Brittany, and to a lesser extent in Scotland, a modern written literature has grown up and flourishes. Meanwhile intensive collecting of folklore and custom has enabled much to be preserved that would otherwise have been lost, and we now have a rich store of heroic tales and legends which can be traced to the early Celtic world.
Produced by Adrian Johnson
Study notes are available
The series will be repeated during August and September

: DOWNGRADED TO CLASSIFIED

The Goat-Boy file by PAUL MAYERSBERG
Mr. Mayersberg approaches John Barth 's new novel Giles Goat-Boy by way of its concern with the giant computer WESCAC, and its obsession with classification. He sees the theme of the book as The Hero v. The Computer, and finds the battle against over-simplification by pigeon-holing mimed in Its own classification-defying structure.

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.
