Aage Haugland (bass) Danish National Radio Chorus and Symphony Orchestra conductor
Dmitri Kitaenko.
Founded in 1925, the National Radio Symphony Orchestra is Denmark's leading ensemble. Under its chief conductor
Leif Segerstam it has recently undertaken major world tours, together with recordings of music by Nielsen, Sibelius and Mahler. Meanwhile its principal guest conductor, Dmitri Kitaenko (formerly of the Moscow
Philharmonic) is recording a broad repertoire, including Stravinsky,
Prokofiev, and the most important figure in 19thcentury Danish musical life, Niels Gade. Gade was a friend of Mendelssohn and was also influenced by Schumann. His early work in particular has a distinctive charm and spontaneity. His rarely performed choral cantata of 1853, The Elf-King's
Daughter, opens tonight's concert. Its subject is the dramatic encounter between Lor OIuf, on the eve of his intended wedding, and the elf-king's daughter. Niels Gade

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.
