Part 1
Alban Berg's Violin Concerto was his last work. Dedicated ' to the memory of an angel,' it was written in 1935 as an elegy on the death of Manon Gropius, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Mahler's widow. There are two movements, each of which is divided into two sections; in the last section Berg introduces the German chorale ' Es ist genug,' with the same harmonies that Bach gave to it in his volume of chorale-harmonisations.

It is common knowledge that Dickens used his father as a model for Mr. Micawber. and a Mrs. Jane Seymour Hill for the ' volatile' dwarf Miss Mowcher. Unpublished letters by John Dickens. Mrs. Hill, and Charles Dickens himself bring out the relationship between the real life characters and the fiction.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
