Everything You Wanted to
Know about Conductors, but Were Afraid to Ask
Does an orchestra need a conductor? Or would it be better off on auto-pilot? What exactly do they do? "There are undoubtedly quite a few charlatans In conducting," says Lorin Maazel , one of the world's highest-paid maestros.
This revealingfilm explores the many talents of concert and opera conductors, from the legends of the past like
Toscanini and Karajan to the great and not-so-great exponents of today.
What distinguishes the poseur from the genius?
" Conductors get away with not knowing the pieces well enough because there are too few really good people around," says
Franz Welser-Most of the LPO.
And how do they justify the money they make? Rodney Friend , former leader of the London and New York Philharmonics, offers this view:
"Many of our friends who stand on the podium get paid more than an entire orchestra. I think there's got to be something loopy in the whole profession." Producer Kriss Rusmanis
Series editor Nigel Williams

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.
