This new orchestra of thirty-five players was established by an agreement between the B.B.C. and the City of Birmingham Orchestra, and is to be employed by the former all the year round for Studio Concerts both for Midland Regional and in the daytime ' pool'. Leslie Heward , of the City Orchestra, will be conducting some of the concerts ; others will be taken by the new Regional Music Director.
Saint-Saens's symphonic poems are actually based upon Liszt's, as are all symphonic poems written since Liszt's day. All such works vary very slightly in construction, and have, as a rule; an artistic resemblance to that type of story known as the conte. They are almost always based upon some literary model and are economical in their subject matter as a really good concise short story. The plot of Danse Macabre is of the simplest. The scene is a graveyard at night; the clock strikes, and Death appears, knocks on the graves, and starts tuning his fiddle.

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.
