The New English Trio:

Dorothea Aspinall (pianoforte)
Although twenty-five years ago the music of Grieg enjoyed great popularity and he was generally considered to be one of the great figures of the second half of the nineteenth century, except for a handful of his works, such as the ' Peer Gynt ' Suite, his music is unjustly ignored today. One of the most neglected branches of Grieg's art is his songs, a number of which may well bear comparison with those of the finest of the great German Lieder composers. The group to be heard this afternoon will give some small idea of the many treasures waiting to be unearthed by the enterprising sincer.

: MY DEAR—!

A study of Fans and some of their Fancies
Designed by Gale Pedrick Produced by John Cheatle
This diverting programme treats, not with unkind satire, the growth and influence of hero-worship — today called fan-worship-which is the penalty of fame. It will recall the first organised fan-club, the ' Keen-Order-of-Wallerites ', known as the ' K.O.W.'s members of which pledged themselves to turn up in force at every performance by the great romantic actor, Lewis Waller ; and the opposition club, the ' True-to-Trees ', who supported Beerbohm Tree.
It will deal with fan mail ; the extraordinary loyalty to Rudolph Valentino that still exists, although many years have lapsed since his death ; and the length to which the fan will go in adoration of a particular star. It will touch on the enthusiasm of the famous gallery first-nighters'; the Theatrical Garden Party, for which Gerald du Maurier did so much, and at which playgoers may rub shoulders with their idols ; the picture-postcard era ; and the emotional excitement, almost amount-in to hysteria, surrounding the modern film star.
For the first time in the history of radio an analysis of the value of publicity will be given on the air. Gale Pedrick , who was responsible for the recent programme, ' Ladies and Gentlemen of the Chorus ', has made a study of fan-worship in all its forms and has a unique collection of fan letters written to celebrated theatrical and sporting people.

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.
