: After the Storm

The American Exile of Bela Bartok
'It's as though we've been caught in a storm at sea and blown to shore with no more than the clothes on our backs.' So wrote the great Hungarian composer, Bartok, on his arrival in New York in 1940, after his flight from war-torn Europe. He was to spend the last years of his life there fighting sickness, poverty and failure. Nevertheless, consoled by the cycles of nature, his last five years produced some of his greatest and most moving music.
In this second film in BBC2's celebratory season, many of the composer's friends and colleagues, including Sir
Georg Solti and Sir Yehudi Menuhin join his sons Peter and Bela Jr to tell the story of these last years of exile.
Music performed by Budapest Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ervin Lukacs and Sir Georg Solti , with Gyorgy Sandor (piano) and Laszlo Barsony (viola). Photography

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.

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.
