Mozart, Cole Porter, Rachmaninov, Gilbert and Sullivan, Lennon and McCartney -just some of those who never imagined what the likes of Noel Coward, Alan Sherman, Spike Jones, Richard Stilgoe, The Barron Knights, Flotsam and Jetsam, Paddy Roberts, and Flanders and Swann would do with - or to - their work.
Jeremy Nicholas takes an affectionate look at song parodies, burlesques, lampoons, pastiches and simple send-ups in a special holiday edition of this popular series.

10 June 1938: Went to Bot Lab for prep - horrible stink there - Mair said afterwards she wouldn't come near me because I stank so much. Told her she stank before going in to Bot Lab! Did crossword puzzle after tea. Started diary - wonder how far I'll get....
That diary, written by a South Wales schoolgirl, ended in December 1939. It was the year that war broke out - and it was also the year that Mary Bevan didn't make the hockey team, became Head Girl and fell in love. This is a portrait - in her own words - of that year in her brief life.

There are ordinary bird-watchers and there are
'twitchers'. Each autumn this strange breed descends on the Isles of Scilly in search of its quarry. Sue Hicks joined last year's migration and discovered that twitchers have their own language and plumage, and are driven by an instinct to 'tick' as many species as possible, for the longer the tick-list the more important you are.

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.
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.
