Live from the City Hall, Newcastle upon Tyne. The Northern Sinfonia's pairing of Schoenberg and Haydn brings together two of the most progressive voices in European classical music in unfamiliar guise. Schoenberg began the second chamber symphony in 1906, completing it in 1939, towards the end of his life. His Suite in G, composed for a college string orchestra in 1934, is also a strikingly tonal work. Haydn's keyboard concerto in D of 1784 relates more to the symphonic concerto style of the young Mozart than to the concerto grosso models of Haydn's other early concertos.

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.
