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 final masterclass in the series given by American trumpet virtuoso and jazz musician Wynton Marsalis , who plays and discusses music with an audience of young people.
Tackling the Monster. Marsalis is joined by cellist Yo-Yo Mafora discussion of the importance of, and different approaches to, practising technique - which both musicians confess they still dislike.
Marsalis suggests 12 ways of practising, including seeking private instruction, writingout a schedule covering all the different aspects of playing the instrument, setting goals that chart development, playing only when at full concentration, and practising in a group.
Ma performs Sergei Prokofiev 's march from The Love for Three Oranges with three cello students, and the programme ends with a rendition of Duke Ellington's Mood Indigo. Executive producer Chris Lent

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.
