BORN at Strasburg in 1837, Emil Waldteufol studied Pianoforte at the Paris Conservatoire, and was for a time Pianist to the Empress Eugenie. Besides being a player of the pianoforte he was engaged for some time in the manufacture of the instrument, an unusual combination of experiences. His first waltzes were published at his own expense, but they achieved so immediate and pronounced a success that he gave himself up to the composition of dance tunes, eventually leaving hundreds of these, of which the greater number are waltzes. Their popularity has never waned, nor does it seem likely to. Waldteufel lived to the ripe old age of seventy-four, dying in Paris, which had been his home since boyhood, at the beginning of 1912.

BORN in 1802. in Gloucestershire,
Herbert Howells had his first instruction at the hands of Dr. Herbert Brewer , of Gloucester Cathedral. He was himself an articled pupil there for a time, coming in 1912 to the Royal College of Music in London with an open scholarship. After a brilliant career as a student, he joined the staff of the College and has since earned a distinguished position for himself among the younger native composers. He is at home in every form of music except opera, which he has not yet explored, and in all of them displays a sure hand and a real facility of invention. In spite of his duties in London, and the way in which the great world has captured so much of his gifts, Howells remains at heart a real West Countryman, with a keen interest in Gloucestershire.

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.
