: I Know What I Like

For some years at the start of his career, the conductor Roger Norrington pursued his musical activities outside office hours. Twenty years ago he made the break by founding the Heinrich Schutz Choir, leading a crusade on behalf of this then little-known master, and thereby establishing his own reputation as a performer of pre-classical music. His choice of music ranges far and wide, from Schutz and Bach to Bartok and Pee Wee Hunt playing Twelfth Street rag

: The Bach who came to London: Adriano in Siria

direct from the Logan
Hall. Bloomsbury, London The first of six
Programmes marking the bicentenary of the death of Johann Christian Bach is the first performance since 1765 of his sixth opera. The boy Mozart, who was in London then. was befriended by Bach and almost certainly saw the opera. Mozart later wrote embellishments to one of the arias and-these will be sung this evening.
The opera is set in Antioch in AD 117, after Trajan had annexed Parthia and after
Hadrian had succeeded him as Emperor.

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.
