' Bombet ' (which was one of 'Stendhal's ' other pseudonyms) was probably the first writer to relate the well-known story of the ' Surprise ' Symphony. ' When Haydn was in England he records, ' he perceived that the English, who were very fond of his instrumental compositions when the movement was lively and allegro, generally fell asleep during the andantes and adagios, in spite of all the beauties he could accumulate. He therefore wrote an andante, full of sweetness, and of the most tranquil movement ; all the instruments seemed gradually to die away ; but, in the middle of the soft pianissimo, striking up all at once, and reinforced by a stroke of the kettle-drum, they made the slumbering audience start.' As Haydn himself said when he was showing the score to a friend, 'There all the women will scream.'
D'Indy, Cesar Franck 's favourite pupil, for many years held a leading place in the French world of music, as composer, teacher, and author. He succeeded Franck in 1890 as President of the National Society of Music. A man of immense industry and the highest ideals, he did more for the music of his own day and country than it would be easy to reckon, and his compositions range over a very wide field. Essentially French, his music springs from the best impulses of the romantic movement though his own character was too strong to be very much influenced from outside sources.
The subject of Walton's Overture, first performed in 1926, is the place of embarkation, before the days of piers and landing-stages, known for centuries as Portsmouth Point. Thomas Rowlandson , the eighteenth-century caricaturist, made a colour print of it, and Walton's music was inspired by this breezy, bustling, humorous picture.

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.

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.
