Glimpses of a whirlwind life, compiled by ANDREW THOMAS and Michael Tudor Barnes Nicholas Courtney

Little known today.
Gottschalk was in the 1850s the nearest thing to an international superstar. A musical prodigy, born in New Orleans of an English father and a Creole mother, he achieved early fame as a virtuoso pianist and conductor, and was one of the first composers to use Latin American and Creole folk themes. He was the darling of royalty and the ' heart-throb of the West '. He was something of a cult figure and his concerts rarely failed to cause a sensation. He died in 1869. aged 40.

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.
