Five Fictional Heroes
With Donald Macleod.
4: Stephen Maturin. Maturin - Irishman, ship's doctor and amateur scientist - is the hero of a series of novels by Patrick O'Brian. He has connections in high places, but his lack of uniform and his fluency in foreign languages mean that he is often on board ship on some unspecified government business - secret diplomatic missions or espionage. He also has a great love of music, which he shares with the ship's captain as they sail the seven seas. Including excerpts from:
Locatelli Trio Sonata in G, Op 5 No 1 Philharmonia Virtuosi
Boccherini Sonata in D
Mela Tenenbaum (violin), Dorothy Lawson (cello)
Haydn Duet in D, H X 11 Philharmonia Virtuosi
Molter Trumpet Concerto No 2 in D Maurice Andre , Paillard CO, conductor Jean-Francois Paillard

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.
