An article on the Holy Island, blessed by St. Columba on the last day of his life (according to tradition), will appear in next week's issue of The Radio Times, published on June 5.

The Rhapsody for violin, 'cello, and orchestra by Kenneth Harding , who plays the viola in the BBC Symphony Orchestra, is, in effect, a double concerto. It was composed in 1928, and received its first performance by the National Orchestra of Wales under Warwick Braithwaite in 1929. Kenneth Harding , who studied under Sir Walford Davies , was for some years principal viola of the National Orchestra of Wales.
Vladimir Vogel's 'Ritmica Ostinata', based on a marching song, dates from 1933. It is one of three studies for orchestra, of which the other two, ' Ritmica Funebre ' and ' Ritmica Scherzosa ', were performed at the Oxford-London Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music in 1931. Originally composed for a brass orchestra, there is yet another version (with words) for chorus and wind orchestra.

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.
