Lorin Maazel conducts the New Philharmonia Orchestra
leader Emanuel Hurwitz

The newly appointed Musical Director of the Cleveland Orchestra and Associate Principal Conductor of the New Philharmonia Orchestra describes how it is that music has the power to evoke in him a strong and personal response.
To illustrate this he conducts excerpts from Bizet's "Carmen", Holst's "The Planets", Mahler's Fifth Symphony, Stravinsky's "The Soldier's Tale", Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite", Varese's "Ionisation", Wagner's "Gotterdammerung" and Bach's Suite No 3.



Conductor: Lorin Maazel
Musicians: The New Philharmonia Orchestra

: The World About Us: Flamenco Triangle

Deep in the south-west corner of Spain lies one of the most fascinating regions in Europe, the Flamenco - or flamingo - Triangle. It is a land shared by colourful People and colourful wildlife, their lives strongly intertwined. But now life is beginning to change.
What will happen to this land of bulls and horses, flamingos and eagles, flamenco and fiesta? What will become of the great sand dunes like the Sahara, the vast marshes full of wildfowl, the famous Coto Dofiana, and the remarkable pilgrimage to the Lady of the Dew?

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.
