: This Week's Composer

Rimsky-Korsakov 1844-1908 Like others of the Russian Nationalist composers. Rimsky-Korsakov came from a well-to-do family, and was brought up in the countryside among the folk music which was to inftuence him strongly. Composing became an all-absorbing interest during a term of naval service, and In 1871 he was offered the post of Professor of Composition at the St Petersburg Conservatory. It was there that he wrote the 15 operas which form the major part of his output: some of this is broadcast during the week. May Night: Act 3

Byrd. Twenty-sixth of 28 programmes devised and presented by Basil Lam.
The unsurpassed variety of mood and rhythm in Byrd's church music is best summed up in Peacham's words of 1622: ' For Motetts and Musicke of pietie and devotion ... I prefer above all other our Phoenix M. William Byrd whom in that kind I know not whether any man may equall? '

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.
