A fairytale opera in three acts by Humperdinck
Libretto by ERNST ROSMER (sung in German: records) Humperdinck's ' other ' opera (Children of Kings) first appeared in 1897 as a kind of melodrama, using a primitive form of Sprechgesang. It was not a success and in 1908 the composer began turning it into a full-scale opera. In this form it had its first performance at the Metropolitan, New York, in 1910. BAVARIAN RADIO CHORUS

"They gleefully agreed on a signal at which they would begin to smash the windows, which were of stained glass depicting Biblical scenes; and certain that they would have a large following among the people, they set out towards the Cathedral when the bells began to ring, determined to leave not one stone standing on another."

: Drama Now

Garrison Halibut
An extravaganza by IAN DOUGALL with James Aubrey as Bo' Rider
Garrison' and 'Halibut' are the first and last words in a volume of one edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica and Garrison Halibut also happens to be the name of the place where Ian Dougall 's everyman acquires his experience. The play is an allegorical journey through a Holly-wood-style Wild West, a free-form satire on some aspects of the Western, but also a disguised attack against the value of formal specialised knowledge when the student may in many respects turn out to be a ' social imbecile'.

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.

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.
