SIR JOHN McEWEN is the second distinguished Principal in succession whom
Scotland has given to the Royal Academy of Music. His wise guidance of the senior music school in this country, where respect for the old traditions and a broadminded view of newer things go hand in hand, is known to all our listeners, even in Scotland. In many other ways, too, Sir John has worked hard in the best interests of music, and it might seem as though he had left himself no chance at all for original composition. But he has found time to give us some fine music, chiefly for orchestra and for str;ng quartet. Oddly enough, ho has not composed for voices, either singly or in bodies ; he makes no secret of it that the voice does not appeal to him as a composer.
Ho has never taken any trouble to press the claims of his own music, leaving it rather to performers and to the public to discover its fine qualities for themselves. It may well bo that ho would agree with one wise critic who said of his work that it is ' music for those who are ready to forego excitement and take measured delight in fine quality.'

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.
