: This Week's Composer

Stravinsky and the Ballet
It was through his scores for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes that Stravinsky first achieved international fame. He was to go on composing for the ballet almost the rest of his life, and in fact it influenced his musical thinking in whatever form he wrote. Movement and dance were the mainsprings of his imagination. The ballets in these programmes were composed between 1911 and 1947. Jeu de cartes

: * Translating Eugene Onegin

Alexander Pushkin 's biographer. Henri Troyat ,- wrote:
'Translation of Pushkin is treason.' But a number of people have tried, notably Vladimir Nabokov , who produced an unrhymed English version of the Russian writer s poetic novel.
Then, a few months ago, a new, privately printed translation appeared, written in the same iambic tetrameters as Pushkin's original, and it was enthusiastically acclaimed by virtually all its reviewers.
It was by a retired diplomat, Sir Charles Johnston. who discusses the difficulties of his task and the ways in which he tried to resolve them
The illustrations from Pushkin's original are read by GEORGE VASILCHIKOV

: Memories of Sigmund Freud

Visitors to the Freud household in Vienna were greeted not with a glass of sherry but with a well-chosen Jewish joke. According to Freud the joke fulfilled the same function as alcohol in raising the spirits.
Eva Rosenfeld first met Freud in 1924. In this conversation from the BBC Sound Archives. she talks to DR TOM MAIN about life in the Freud household, her involvement with the Psychological Wednesday Circle, and her reactions to his work.

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.
