Gerald Moore (piano)
Book 1:
Auch kleine Dinge konnen uns entzilcken; Mir ward gesagt, du reisest in die Feme; Ihr seid die Allerschonste; Gesegnet sei, durch den die Welt emstund; Sehg Ihr Blinden; Wer rief dich denn?; Der Mond hat eine schwere Klag' erhoben; Nun lass u.ns Frieden schliessen; Dass doch gemalt all' deine Reize waren; Du denkst mit einem Fadchen mich zu fangen; Wie lange schon war immer mein Verlangen; Nein, junger Herr; Hoffanig seid Ihr, sahones Kind; Geselie, woll'n wir uns in Kutten hüllen ?; Mein Liebster ist so klein.
Book 2:
Ihr jungen Leute; Und willst du deinen Liebsten sterben sehen; Heb auf dein blondes Haupt; Wir haben beide lange Zeit geechwiegen; Mein Liebster singt am Haus im Mondenscheine; Man sag[ mir, deine Mutter wollt' es nicht; Ein Standchen Euch zu bringen; Was fur eia Lied soil dir gesungen werden; Ich esse nun mein Brot nicht trocken mehr; Mein Liebster hat zu Tische mich geladen; lob Less mir sagen und mir ward erzählt; Schon streckt' ioh aus im B:tt die muden Glieder; Du sagst mir, dass ich keine Furstin sei; Wohl kenn ich Euren Stand; Lass sic nur gehn, die so die Stolze spick.

The private history of a public monument told by Arthur Calder-Marshall
* The following Gentlemen, feeling that no Monument worthy of his name and services has yet been raised to his memory,
(Continued in next column)
have formed themselves into a Committee for the purpose of erecting a COLOSSAL BRONZE STATUB of DR. JENNER by William Calder-Marshall , A.R.A., to be placed in a public situation in London ... ' The mid-Victorian appeal succeeded: a statue of the discoverer of vaccination stands in Kensington Gardens today. But, as Arthur Calder-Marshall reveals, the private history of that public monument was curious and complicated.

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.
