This time an English poet leads you to your next clue. He lived a hundred years ago; his Christian name is saintly; his initials are coveted by many scholars; his surname may remind you of a famous English public school.
4 In a treasury of poems you will find the one you seek,
It is not of human beings that the title words will speak,
Great winds blow and salt tides flow,
And a silver bell will guide you to the lines you need to know.'

: THE FRIDAY RECITAL

Philip Levi (piano)
Busoni, as is well known, had a great admiration for the music of Bach and arranged a considerable amount of his clavier and organ music for the piano. It was from Bernhard Ziehn, a counterpoint teacher whom he met in Chicago in 1910, that he first got the idea of completing the unfinished fugue in Bach's ' Art of Fugue'; the result of this was his Fantasia Contrappuntistica, which he wrote during a concert tour of the United States. The Fugue, as completed by Busoni, is on four subjects, and is preceded by a Prelude on the Chorale ' Allein Gott in der Hoh' sei Ehr.' Deryck Cooke

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
