: The Polignac Salon

If you've enjoyed the Tale of the Fox,
Drop your pennies in the box!
The centrepiece in the fourth programme in this series devoted to the music associated with the salon of the Princess Edmond de Polignac (1865-1943) is Igor Stravinsky 's burlesque Renard, written in 1916 to a commission from the princess. We also hear of her continuing association with Stravinsky over the years, and of his own trials and tribulations during his French period, including his struggle to complete Les Noces.
Written and narrated by Piers Burton-Page gramophone records

: * A Seamless Robe

It is a conservative argument, hallowed by tradition, to argue that if what exists works well, it should be left alone.' In his new book Sir Charles Curran , Director-General of the BBC from 1969 to 1977. argues just that about the BBC's Royal Charter. Lord Annan, Chairman of the recent Committee on the Future of Broadcasting, reviews A Seamless Robe and the success of its Principles in practice.

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.
