Among the tangled rhymes my soul has breathed
The music she has learned when shadow-wreathed
Desire went a-seeking in the night....

'I believe it to be one of my better things' said Bax about his setting of five poems from The Bard of Dimbovitza. a collection of Romanian peasant verse, written originally in 1914. It constitutes a timely reminder that he waa as much influenced by the Slavonic in matters musical as he was the Celticinmattersliterary.

Omnibus

with Richard Baker
Later this week the world will pause to remember the dead ot two wars. Omnibus reflects on the men who chronicled the suffering, fears and courage of those who took part - the war artists.
Also a centenary tribute to Sir Arnold Bax , the British composer and Master of the King's Music who died in 1953. Now another composer, Robert Walker , has visited some of Bax's favourite haunts-Tintagel in Cornwall and the west coast of Ireland. There he rediscovers the inspiration for some of Bax's work, not only as a composer, but also as a writer.

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.
