The Baroque Sound


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The first of two programmes presented by the harpsichordist and conductor Christopher Hogwood.
How did composers such as Purcell, Handel, Vivaldi,
Corelli and Telemann expect to hear their music played? These days there is unprecedented enthusiasm for re-creating Baroque music free of the stylistic distortions common in the 19th century. Internationally respected for this authentic approach,
Christopher Hogwood explores the charm and freshness of the true Baroque sound, and directs from the keyboard
The Salomon String Quartet Simon Standage (violin)
Micaela Comberti (violin) Trevor Jones (viola)
Jennifer Ward Clarke (cello) with Lisa Beznosiuk (flute) playing on original instruments of the period, or modern copies.

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.
