: The Baroque Sound

The first of two programmes presented by the harpsichordist and conductor Christopher Hogwood.
How did composers such as Purcell, Handel, Vivaldi,
Corelli and Telemann expect to hear their music played? These days there is unprecedented enthusiasm for re-creating Baroque music free of the stylistic distortions common in the 19th century. Internationally respected for this authentic approach,
Christopher Hogwood explores the charm and freshness of the true Baroque sound, and directs from the keyboard
The Salomon String Quartet Simon Standage (violin)

: The Light of Experience

'She can wake up after a severe convulsion with stiff limbs and a headache, smile at me, put her arms around my neck and make the simple statement, "I come back", then immediately continue with her enjoyment of life.' Mary [text removed]'s images of motherhood were shattered when she witnessed her beautiful baby daughter having her first epileptic fit.
Successive convulsions left her brain-damaged and in need of constant supervision. Frustrated by the 'experts' who could not agree on a diagnosis, Mary undertook her own studies in psychology which illuminated Anna's condition, but it is from Anna herself that she has leamt most of all.

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.

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