: Performance on 3

British Music Focus
Michael Tippett , like Verdi,
Vaughan Williams and Strauss, continued to explore new worlds in his music well into his 70s and 80s. Andrew McGregor presents two major late works - a setting of visionary poetry by Yeats, and a cosmic treatment of, as Tippett put it, "those fundamental matters that bear upon man, his relationship with time, his place in the world as we know it and in the mysterious universe at large".
Faye Robinson (soprano), Sarah Walker (mezzo), Robert Tear (tenor), John Cheek (bass), BBC Singers, BBC Symphony Chorus BBC Symphony Orchestra, conductor Andrew Davis Tippett Byzantium; The Mask of Time

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
