When Grieg cast his incidental music to Ibsen's play Peer Gynt in the form of two suites, he provided a little summary of the story to show which were the points in it that the several movements illustrate. Two of the movements in the First Suite are set in Morocco, where Peer found himself in his wanderings. The first, ' Morning ', is his awakening on the shore, and the third is a dance performed for him by the Arabian girl, Anitra. The second depicts his mother's death. The last movement is the dance of the people of the mountain king where Peer is held captive.

(Section C)

Méhul began life as a cook and ended by being a composer of national fame.
Opera and ballet were Mehul's chief concerns. He wrote over twenty operas, taking Gluck as his model. At the age of forty-three Mehul came under the influence of Cherubini, with the result that he wrote a set of six symphonies. The No. 2 in D, which appeared in 1808, is a charming little work, characteristic of the period.

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.
