A concert live from the Usher Hall in Edinburgh given by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by Marin Alsop.

8.00 Twenty Minutes: Mahler and Klimt David Huckvale traces the interweaving relationships between Gustav Mahler, the artist Gustav Klimt, and Mahler's wife
Alma. Mahler was known to be the model for the Knight in Klimt's large-scale Beethoven Frieze in Vienna, and repaid the compliment by conducting Beethoven at its unveiling. But it was Alma who first caught the eye of Klimt, when she was in her late teens, and began a romantic involvement four years before she met and married Mahler.

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.
