Maria Curcio - Fulfilling a Legacy
The legendary pianist
Artur Schnabel was part of a tradition of pianist/teachers that can be traced directly back to Beethoven.
Today his most gifted pupil, Maria Curcio , lives in London but never performs. In the first of two specials
Michael Berkeley traces the events of the Second World War which made it impossible for her to pursue a concert career, but which led to her becoming one of the most sought-after teachers of the post-war generation, thereby fulfilling the Schnabel legacy.

: Duke Bluebeard's Castle

A film of the one-act opera by BELA BARTOK , starring
London Philharmonic
Orchestra led by DAVID NOLAN conducted by Adam Fischer. Libretto by BELA BALAZS. (Sung in Hungarian)
Blood on the jewels, blood on the crown, the soil of the garden dark with blood.... I know, Bluebeard - I know what is hidden behind the seventh door.
A young woman, Judith, has fallen in love with the mysterious figure of Duke Bluebeard. She follows him to his remote castle, in spite of the rumours that his previous wives have all disappeared. There she finds seven locked doorways and, as each is opened in its turn, Bluebeard's Castle yields up its terrible secrets.
This timeless legend, in a new production on film for BBCtv, is underscored by some of Bartok's most powerful and romantic music. Prologue read by John Woodvine.

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.
