The nine scenes of Vaughan Williams 's Job run as follows: i. Job and his family sitting in quiet contentment surrounded by flocks and herds. Satan enters unperceived and appeals to heaven. God answers : ' All that he hath is in thy power.' 2. God's throne is empty. Satan in wild triumph seats himself upon it. 3. Job's children are feasting and dancing : Satan appears and destroys them. 4. Job is quietly asleep. Satan leans over him and evokes terrible visions which dance round him, foreboding his tribulations to come. 5. The messengers announce to Job the destruction of all his wealth and the death of his sons and daughters. Job still blesses God.
6. Satan introduces Job's comforters, three wily hypocrites. Their dance is at first one of apparent sympathy, but gradually changes to rebuke and anger. Job curses God. ' Let the day perish wherein I was born.' Job invokes his vision of God. Heaven opens and reveals Satan seated on God's throne. Job and his friends cower in terror. 7. Enter Elihu, who is young and beautiful. Heaven opens again and shows God sitting on His throne surrounded by the heavenly host. 8. Satan appeals again to God, but is driven down by the Sons of the Morning. Job and his household build an altar and worship God with musical instruments. The heavenly dance continues. 9. Job, an old and humbled man, sits again surrounded by his family. He blesses his children.

: 'Pearl'

' Pearl ' is perhaps the loveliest of all old English poems. It is a lament of'a man for his little daughter, who is spoken of under the pseudonym of 'Pearl'. This poem has been modernised by J. R. R. Tolkien in such a way that it keeps all the delicacy and atmosphere of the original mediaeval poem

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.
