: Advance Guard

For imaginative concert programming, it would be hard to beat the early festivals of the International
Society for Contemporary Music, before the Second World War. Surprisingly, amid all the established big names and the young lions at the start of their careers, British composers played as big a role as any. In this six-part series,
Martin Cotton sifts through the mix, plays the music and assesses how the British contributions fared in this context. With contributions from Berthold Goldschmidt and Sir William Glock.
1: 1922-23
The ISCM's first two years saw Lord Berners hobnobbing with Stravinsky, Percy Grainger sharing the stand with Schoenberg's second string quartet and the world premiere of a remarkable string quartet by a young, unknown Briton - William Walton.

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.

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.
