Commander J. M. Scott , R.N.
Commander Scott, who is King's Harbour Master at Plymouth, is well qualified to give this talk, which is one of the ' How To Look At ' series. From his office in the Long-room, overlooking Plymouth Sound, he can see every day the largest liners in the world and the greatest men-o'-war. In his talk, he will explain how to tell, from the look of a ship, what kind of ship she is and what sort of job she is likely to be engaged on.

: A Sonata Recital

Kathleen Moorhouse (violoncello)
Frank Merrick (pianoforte)
Dohnanyi's chamber music, which follows the Brahms tradition, is distinguished by its fine craftsmanship and invention. The Cello Sonata in B flat minor, although an early work, is very characteristic of the composer's style. Without any attempt to exploit virtuosity for its own sake, the writing for the cello is both brilliant and effective.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
