: Colour Liszt and London

Like the violin playing of Paganini, who influenced him profoundly. Franz Liszt stretched the powers of the piano to previously unheard-of limits. Like Paganini he too travelled constantly, applauded as the supreme virtuoso of his instrument.
Liszt was welcomed to this country at three widely separated periods of his life. But by chance these represent three distinct stages in his musical development: London saw Liszt as the infant prodigy who played for George IV, as the glamorous sex-symbol who was possibly the most gifted virtuoso pianist who had ever lived, and as the legendary and much venerated composer of old age.
David Wilde , winner of the International Liszt-Bartok Competition in Budapest and a passionate advocate of Liszt, tonight plays music from each period and talks about the prophetic composer and his connections with London.

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.

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.
