The versatility of musicians attached to the court of Henry VIII is well illustrated in the character of William Cornyshe. His music was equally well known in both ohuroh and theatre, and copies of his motots even penetrated to Scotland. As poet and dramatist Cornyshe was capable though at times indiscreet: one sharply pointed satire caused his temporary imprisonment. D. S.

' The Physical Evidence '
First of two talks by Leon Rosenfeld
Professor of Theoretical Physics in the University of Manchester
In this talk Professor Rosenfeld explains how a new synthesis has taken the place of the dualism of matter and energy which was the characteristic of nineteenth-century physics. He describes in some dotail the much discussed and misunderstood ' uncertainty relations,' and speaks of Niels Bohr's concept of complementarity and the relation of determinism to complementarity.

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.
