Illustrated talk by Helena Shire
The speaker has discovered that one of the seventeenth-century manuscript music-books in the possession of Lord Dalhousie contains material that scholars had thought lost for ever. There are two songs whose existence was known only from their parodies, several unknown lyrics, a telling in the vernacular of a great European ballad, and much else to cast light on seventeenth-century poetry in Scotland.

Illustrated talk by Peter Stadlen
The metronome, though not invented by Maelzel, was developed by him during Beethoven's ' second period.' Beethoven welcomed it as a device for establishing tempo with certainty. Peter Stadlen discusses the advantages of adhering to Beethoven's metronome marks even in those movements where they are generally ignored in modern performances

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.
