: Beethoven

Lieder Recital
Robert Tear (tenor)
John Constable (piano) The second of six programmes featuring music ranging from chamber to oratorio by this great composer.
Although Beethoven's short works are less well known than his large masterpieces, they are an important reminder of the breadth of his creative talent, indeed the subject matter of his songs is often the same as in his grander works.
Michael Berkeley looks at the background to the songs and talks to Robert Tear about Beethoven's writing for the voice.
Recorded in Margam Orangery.

: Lord Reith Looks Back

'I was never fully stretched.' Lord Reith regarded his decision to leave the BBC in 1938 as a 'frightful mistake'. In this second programme drawn from his 1967 interviews with Malcolm Muggeridge , Lord Reith describes his unexpected departure from the Corporation he had worked so hard to create.
Acknowledging his frustration at his subsequent exclusion from high office, he reflects frankly on his turbulent relationship with Churchill and on his sense of a career thwarted, a life unfulfilled.


Unknown: Malcolm Muggeridge
Producer: Stephen Peet

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.
