A best-seller, like tested wire, can hold up an astonishing weight of reputation. Gabriel Pierne is a musician of consequence in France, though it is very doubtful if even his name would convey very much to us over here were it not for the famous serenade, to be heard again this afternoon. This serenade is the progenitor of a very numerous family. Nearly all
a numerous family. Nearly all modern serenades are made in the likeness of Pierne's, but few are anything like as goo fewer as long-lived.

Then there is the equally famous "Still as the Night" of Carl Bohm. Bohm was a contemporary of Brahms, and published, as did Brahms, with the firm of Lengnick. Brahms, who did not write best-sellers, cost Lengnick a lot of money, which Bohm, who did write them, was the means of supplying. Thus did the lesser man earn and occupy his little niche in the temple of fame.

HAYDN was bom twenty-four years before Mozart, and survived him for nearly twenty years more. It was natural, therefore, that Mozart should first profit from Haydn's experience, and inevitable that he should advance beyond it. There is something very pleasant in the fact of these two highly-gifted men playing the game of emulation one against the other, entirely without jealousy, and in the cause of art; and something very touching in their relations. Mozart dedicated six quartets to Haydn, 'for,' he said, 'from Haydn I first learnt how to compose a quartet' and Haydn said to Mozart's father, ' I declare to you before God as a man of honour, that your son is the greatest composer that I know, either personally or by reputation ; he has taste, and beyond that the most consummate knowledge of the art of composition.'

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.
