BBC CHORUS AND SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA conducted by COLIN DAVIS

It was only with reluctance that the ageing Haydn undertook an oratorio based on James Thomson 's poem ' The Seasons' but as the work progressed he found his interest captured.
Pat Rogers. Professor of English at University College of North Wales, Bangor, argues that it was Thomson's handling of the idea of the Seasons that presented it in stimulating form to the 18th-century imagination.

: David Jones

Maker of Signs
Compiled and introduced by PETER ORR with autobiographical recollections recorded by DAVID JONES for the British Council and for Jon Silkin.
David Jones , poet and painter, died a year ago, a few days before his 80th birthday. His two great works ' In Parenthesis ' and ' The Anathemata,' with their powerful symbolic content are not easy to grasp; and for most of his life he remained virtually unknown. But in recent years he has been increasingly recognised as a major poet in the Anglo-Celtic tradition.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
