Introduced by Denis Stevens
First of five programmes of music by Tallis.
Although Thomas Tallis (c. 1505-1585) is universally recognised as one of the greatest and most influential of Tudor composers, his works have suffered an undeserved neglect by reason of their comparative difficulty of access. Most of his music for the Sarum rite was composed at Waltham and at Canterbury, but on his subsequent appointment to the Chapel Royal (where he remained for forty years) he was constantly employed in writing music for the Reformed Church. This series of five programmes, designed to show many aspects of Tallis' remarkable musical genius, will include music for organ, harpsichord, strings, and voices.

: THE NATURE OF SCIENTIFIC THEORY

Natural History and Natural Philosophy
Second of four talks by Stephen Toulmin
Lecturer in the Philosophy of Science in the University of Oxford
The speaker argues that logicians and philosophers have too often thought of all the sciences as sophisticated kinds of natural history and so have obscured the role of theory in science.

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.

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.
