: Segovia at Los Olivos

A Portrait of the Maestro by Christopher Nupen Andres Segovia , the Andalucian par excellence and one of the greatest performing musicians of the century, died in Madrid on 2 June at the age of 94. This film pays tribute to a career that spanned more than 70 years and made
Segovia's name synonymous with the Spanish guitar in almost every part of the world.
His achievement is unique in the history of Western music; Segovia did for the guitar what Casals did for the cello, but he did it with an instrument that had not previously been accepted on the international concert platform.
In the summer of 1967 Andres Segovia returned to
Andalucia at the age of 75 and took his first full summer holiday in 35 years. In the relaxed atmosphere of what was then his new home, Los Olivos, Segovia recalls the ideals, problems and rewards of a lifetime devoted to the Spanish guitar and plays music that is closely associated with his extraordinary career.

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.
