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 Court of Dresden in the 18th Century
' During the reign of Augustus III this city was regarded by the rest of Europe as the Athens of modern times.'
(DR BURNEY, Dresden, 1772) ' The complete manuscript will be at the Dresden Court, kept under lock and key as something rare ... '
(TELEMANN, writing in 1756 about a composition by the Elector's Director of Church Music, Jan Dismas Zelenka)
Only in recent years have Zelenka's remarkable works been rescued from obscurity - in time for the tercentenary of his birth which falls on Tuesday this week. Each day these programmes will include his music.

This Week's Composers

BBC Radio 3, 15 October 1979 9.05

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.
