Composer of the Week:Aram Khachaturian


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.
(1903-78). 1: Armenia. Born 100 years ago this week, Khachaturian is best known for such pieces as the Sabre Dance from the ballet Gayaneh or the soulful
Adagio from Spartacus. Often drawing on his Armenian roots, he wrote much else besides: this week's programmes include excerpts from his symphonies, concertos, and instrumental solos, and from his extensive film and ballet music.

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.
