: JOHN FEARON: Your Dog and Mine'

THIS TALK will appeal to dog lovers. And who are not ? There are to be a few hints on how not to spoil good dogs and many stories about their intelligence. Dogs talk in the stories of Rudyard Kipling and all but talk in real life; they certainly dream, and dreaming, chase rabbits again. Mr. Fearon, a Birmingham journalist, has had a life-long experience of dogs-he even knew one which trained a pup (not her own) to collect hens' eggs for her to eat.


Stories Of: Rudyard Kipling

: A Pianoforte Interlude

ANTON RUBINSTEIN was one of the finest and most famous pianists in musical history ; he was a prolific composer of operas, symphonies, ballets, songs and smaller pieces ; yet it is his fate that by the great majority he is known primarily, and often only, by his popular Melody in F. Charming as is this little piece, it is odd to reflect; that a great man goes down to posterity as the composer of a best-seller.

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.
