With Donald MacLeod.
5: Old Age. Following the death of the Elector of Saxony and the accession of his son Johann Georg II in 1657, Heinrich Schutz began retirement at the age of 72 with a substantial annual pension. It wasn 't a complete break from court as he was still expected to officiate three or four times a year in Dresden at large-scale events. Apart from these ad hoc duties Schutz continued to compose and was free, at last, to produce grander and more richly scored music than ever before.

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.
