The Princess Edmond de Polignac (1865-1943) was the daughter of the founder of the Singer sewing-machine empire, and devoted her share of the Singer fortune to the promotion of the arts, principally music. She organised regular concerts at her houses in Paris and Venice, and among those whom she encouraged were Ravel, Stravinsky, Manuel de Falla, Poulenc and Kurt Weill. This ten-part series Includes many of the works commissioned by the Princess, and some of the other music associated with her salon. This first programme includes two pieces by Emmanuel Chabrier , and Faurg's first great song-cycle, Cinq Melodies de Venise, sung by GÉRARD SOUZAY.

: Medium and Message

The Liberty to Know ' The domain of the anarchic and the arbitrary appears to be extending in society generally. To acquiesce in its extension in broadcasting would probably have the effect of accelerating its extension in society.' In his IBA lecture Freedom and Censorship, DR CONOR CRUISE O'BRIEN, Editor-in-Chief of The Observer, called for greater support for the principle of public responsibility in broadcasting. Michael Charlton chairs a discussion between Dr O'Brien, Geoffrey Robertson , barrister and writer, and Richard Francis , Director of News and Current Affairs in the BBC. about the relationship between broadcasters and governments.

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.
