The Saturday Feature

O for the Wings of a Dove
Sixty years ago, in April 1927, a 15-year-old boy soprano made what was to become one of the most famous recordings in gramophone history. It was of Mendelssohn's 'O for the wings of a dove' and the singer was Ernest Lough.
Jeremy Nicholas discovers the history of that recording and talks to Ernest Lough about the way it changed his life. Producer SALLY THOMPSON

Funny You Should Sing That

Mozart, Cole Porter , Gilbert and Sullivan and Grieg - just some of those who never imagined what the likes of Noel Coward , Alan Sherman , Spike Jones , Richard Stilgoe , Flotsam and Jetsam and Flanders and Swann would do with - or to - their work. Jeremy Nicholas takes an affectionate look at song parodies, burlesques, lampoons, pastiches and simple send-ups.

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.
