: Omnibus: Furtwangler

"My view was, and is, that art must have no truck with power politics, war and hatred between nations."

Common enough sentiments today, perhaps, but not so fashionable in the days of World War II. For Wilhelm Furtwangler, the great German conductor who died in 1954, this form of artistic isolationism proved impossible to achieve.
But it is by his achievements as a musician, unconventional as he was, that he should be judged.
This film examines both Furtwangler's political dilemma and his supreme qualities as a musician.
With contributions from Daniel Barenboim, Boleslaw Barlog, Frau Elisabeth Furtwangler, Szymon Goldberg, Jascha Horenstein, Hans Keller, Yehudi Menuhin, Gareth Morris.

A Bavarian Television production by Florian Furtwangler
English version written and produced by David Buckton

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.
