Third of five programmes in BBC2's festival. With the BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mariss Yanssons
The Fifth Symphony is one of the composer's most popular and powerful works. Written in the shadow of bitter attacks from Pravda after the Bolshoi premiere of his Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, the symphony was originally titled 'A Soviet Artist's Reply to Just Criticism'.
Mariss Yanssons has had a long association with the BBC Welsh Symphony
Orchestra and with the 20th-century Russian repertoire and his performances of Shostakovich are among the most highly praised.

: The Film Club: Senso

Film critic John Francis Lane recalls the furore caused at the 1954 Venice Film Festival by Luchino Visconti's "Senso" starring Alida Valli, Farley Granger
The 1860s. As the Italian independence movement grows in strength, Venice is still occupied by Austrian troops. At a performance of Verdi's "Il trovatore", a young Italian rebel gets into a fight with an Austrian officer. Fearing for her cousin's life Countess Serpieri tries to intercede but loses her heart to the handsome lieutenant. Visconti's gloriously photographed melodrama about sexual and political conflict recalls the extravagance of an Italian opera.

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.
