: Sunday Feature: Fast Fish and Loose Fish: Moby Dick at 150

Herman Melville's vast novel about
Captain Ahab and his crew's pursuit of the great white whale was published 150 years ago. The book invites a range of interpretations: is it an epic tragedy of good against evil, an eco-thriller, a parable for fallen humanity or a handbook for whale enthusiasts? Jeremy Hardingtravels to New Bedford, Nantucket, and to Cape Cod to explore how Moby Dick remains both afast fish and a loose fish, owned by all who pursue it but forever free. With contributions from critics and scholars, musicians and cooks, poets and writers, Melville impersonators and whaling historians, including Laurie Anderson ,
Lawrence Buell , Gail Coffler , Lee Heald , Nathaniel Philbrick , Clare Spark and the crew ofthe Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch.

: Choirworks

The Finnish composer
Einojuhani Rautavaara has in the past had his greatest successes with orchestral and instrumental music. However, his unaccompanied choral works are now being performed all overthe world. Composed in 1971, Vigilia is his complete setting of the Orthodox Liturgy of Matins and Vespers. The meditative style owes much to the example of Rachmaninov and the Russian tradition, but also to his admiration for Debussy and Messiaen.
Paul Guinery is joined by Stephen Layton to introduce a performance specially recorded by the BBC Singers.
Margaret Feaviour (soprano),
Lynette Alcantara (mezzo), Kim Porter (alto), Andrew Murgatroyd (tenor), Simon Birchall (bass) BBC Singers, conductor Stephen Layton Rautavaara Vigilia (R)

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.
