Conversations with Craft


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.
Stephen Walsh talks to Robert Craft in six conversations about the American writer and conductor's relationship with the composer Igor Stravinsky.
3: A Creative Crisis? -
Schutz, Schoenberg and Stravinsky
After the premiere of The Rake's Progress in Europe in 1951 and his visit to
Paris the following year,
Stravinsky faced a creative dilemma: he was no longer at the "cutting edge of the avant-garde". During the next few years, he gradually altered his method of composition to introduce some of Schoenberg's serial procedures. Was this Craft's doing? Was this development natural for a composer in his 70s? Including excerpts from Stravinsky's Cantata,
Septet, In memoriam Dylan Thomas and Agon and Schoenberg's Orel Satiren , Op 28.

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.
