During the greater part of the nineteenth century Italian instrumental music was completely eclipsed by Italian opera. The line of Corelli and Vivaldi and Domenico Scarlatti seemed to be extinct. The revival of Italian instrumental music towards the end of the century was almost entirely due to two composers: Giuseppe Martucci (1856-1909) and Giovanni Sgambati (1843-1914).
Martucci was a friend of British music and introduced the work of Parry and Stanford in Italy. In return his music was often played in England. His First Symphony, which is being played this afternoon, was performed at the Royal College of Music in 1898.

: DARTS

A Challenge Match
Boxers v. Footballers
Described by Charlie Gamer from Belsize Tavern, Swiss Cottage
Listeners are to hear a commentary on what surely is the darts match of the season. A team of boxers captained by Syd Hulls , the boxing promoter, is to play a team of Tottenham Hotspur players captained by Willie Hall , inside-left last season both for the Spurs and for England and scorer of five goals in an International. Each team will consist of eight players, and among the boxers it is expected that Len Harvey , Eric Boon , Tommy Farr , Eddie Phillips , Jack Bloomfield , Bombardier Billy Wells , and Jimmy Wilde will turn out.
The landlord of the Belsize
Tavern, near Swiss Cottage-Jack Henry , ex-Detective Inspector of Scotland Yard, who is responsible for the current series, ' What Price Crime ? ' in Lucky Dip-has been associated with Tottenham and boxers for the past thirty years. He regards it as a gesture both to himself and to sport that so many men who have made their name in the ring and on the football ground should assemble in his tavern to play darts tonight. He will share the commentary with Charlie Garner.

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.
