Italian music of the 14th century was essentially a secular, a renaissance, art. Its master-pieces are miniature ones: song settings of the fixed verse forms, in which the vocal parts often demand considerable virtuosity. The subjects of the verse reflect most aspects of the leisured life: hunting, fishing, love-making, moralising.
No instruments are expressly called for in the manuscripts, but we know from contemporary literature, painting, and sculpture that these songs were commonly performed with instrumental accompaniment and sometimes by instruments alone. One of the rare collections of purely instrumental music of the time contains keyboard settings of several Italian songs, and two of these settings will be heard in today's programme.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
