HAMISH MACCUNN , who was born in Greenock in 1868, showed an early aptitude for music, and, on the opening of the Royal College of Music in 1883, won a scholarship for composition. He was a pupil there of Sir Hubert Parrv and resigned his scholarship in 1886. It was not until 1887 that his name became widely known,' from the success of his overture ' Land of the Mountain and Flood '. In 1894, his opera, Jeanie Deans , was produced by the Royal Carl Rosa Company in Edinburgh, and performed in London by the same company after considerable success in the provinces, in 1896.

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
