Franz Tischhauser, who is a member of the staff of Zurich Radio, was born in Berne in 1921. Das Nasobem, which was written in 1950, consists of settings of seven nonsense-rhymes by the German poet Christian Morgenstern. Harald Saeverud was born in Bergen in 1897. He has written a large amount of music, including seven symphonies: this Piano Concerto was composed in 1950 for the Norwegian pianist, Robert Riefling. It is in three movements: Allegro non troppo; Andante cantabile; Allegro scherzando.
Karl-Birger Blomdahl, who was born in Vaxjo, Sweden, in 1916, is a pupil of Hilding Rosenberg. In the Hall of the Mirrors, which he completed last year, is a group of nine settings of sonnets by Erik Lindegren. D.C.

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.
