A Voice in the Night: the Musical Exodus from Central Europe
By 1930, composers of almost every field of music had made Berlin the musical centre of Europe. Particularly lively were the fields of light entertainment and cabaret, with music by composers such as Wilhelm Grosz , Mischa Spoliansky , Allan Gray , Nicholas Brodsky and Hans May. This golden age ended with the advent of the Nazis when many of the composers moved to London and worked in the British film and light music industries.

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.
