Georg Christoph Wagenseil was born in Vienna in 1715 and died there in 1777.

He wrote a considerable number of compositions, including harpsichord sonatas, symphonies, and operas, all of which were held in high esteem.

You', is now one of the biggest hits in America and he hopes to broadcast it over here. Among famous number he has composed are Good-night
Sweetheart', 'Love is the sweetest thing ', ' The very thought of you',
'Love Locked Out', and The Touch of your Lips'.

: TUG-OF-WAR

at the Royal Tournament
The Final of the Inter-Services
Championship
(130 stone)
A commentary by Thomas Woodrooffe from Olympia
Two of the four Services will be represented in the Final of the Heavyweight Tug-of-War, to be pulled tonight. Each team of eight men must scale not more than 130 stone, inclusive of trunks, vests, socks, and boots. Although the commentary is to last for a quarter of an hour it may well be that the result will not be known, for a tug-of-war, pulled at Jubbulpore, India, in 1889, between teams drawn from two companies of the 2nd Derbyshire Regiment, lasted for two hours and forty-one minutes. True, it was a record!

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.
