: This Week's Composer

Frederick Delius
Songs of Farewell
The years between the end of World War I and Deliuss death in 1934 were years of steadily growing pain and suffering for the composer as he gradually succumbed to paralysis and blindness. He became increasingly reliant on his wife, Jelka, and later on Eric Fenby to take down his complex compositions by the laborious process of dictation. In the very last works, he was often drawn to material and sketches from several years before.

: The Price of Victory

The last of eight documentary programmes written and presented by Michael Charllon , which examine what have been called the ' missed opportunities ' of Britain's European diplomacy between the final years of the Second World War and de Gaulle's veto of the United Kingdom's bid tt. join the EEC.
8: The Great Refusal
Why, in January 1963. did the President of France veto the British application? Did
Mr Macmillan misjudge his personal influence with de Gaulle? Was Polaris a pretext or the reason for the refusal? Were the tactics of the negotiations misconceived?
Contributions from THE REV SIR HERBERT ANDREW , GEORGE BALL , LORD BUTLER, EDWARD HEATH. MP. MAURICE COUVE DE MURVILLE, LORD ROLL, LORD SOAMES. SIR HAROLD WILSON , MP. SIR PHILIP DE ZULUETA and recordings from the BBC Sound and Television Archives. Producer

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.
