Muir Matheson, who conducted Arthur Bliss's music for H.G. Wells's film, Things to Come, comes from Stirling, Scotland, where he was born in 1911. He studied the piano under Philip Halstead in Glasgow, and then won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music for conducting. After touring Canada with a ballet company he studied conducting with Malcolm Sargent, and on several occasions he has acted as deputy for Dr. Sargent, notably for three performances of Hiawatha at the Albert Hall last year.

(Section D)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conductor, ADRIAN BOULT
HOWARD -JONES (pianoforte)
Goldmark's Overture ' Sakuntala ' illustrates the story of the king who meets a maid, Sakuntala, while hunting in the forest. He falls in love with her and gives her a ring which she loses, and owing to the enchantments of evil spirits the king quickly forgets all about her. Thus Sakuntala is put to a great deal of unhappiness until the ring is found by a fisherman. He takes it to the king, who immediately recovers his loss of memory, drives off the evil spirits, and makes it up with Sakuntala.

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.
