THE SCENE of Martha is laid in Richmond and an old-fashioned hiring fair is the central point of the story. A great lady, bored by her Court life, allows herself to be hired as servant to a young farmer. with whom she falls in love. Her affection is returned, and the apparent difference in their station leads to complications, but at the end it is discovered that the young farmer is really a nobleman, and the opera ends happily with their betrothal.
The opera is still occasionally performed, but it survives mainly in the Overture, a very popular item in concert programmes.

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.
