Cesar Franck 's symphonic poem ' Les Eolides' was composed in 1876. The music is based on some lines by Leconte de Lisle, of which the following is a free translation: '0 breezes drifting in the skies, sweet breath of lovely spring, who with playful kisses caress the hills and plains : 0 virgin daughters of Aeolus, lovers of peace, nature wakens at your songs.'

Mill-owner, philanthropist, and social reformer, Robert Owen was one of the most remarkable figures of the early nineteenth century. Born in Montgomeryshire in 1771, he became manager of a cotton mill at the age of nineteen. Within ten years he became part owner of the important mills at New Lanark and it was contact with the demoralised drudges who worked in his own mills that set him on the path of social reform.
That path led him to the founding of infant schools (of which he was the pioneer in Great Britain), of the co-operative system, and of the labour-exchange system-if not of actual ' socialism '. At any rate the word ' socialism ' first got into currency through the ' Association of All Classes of All Nations ' founded by Owen in 1835. (Northern)

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.

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