: The Music of Terezin

"We were dancing under the gallows," says a survivor of Terezin, the walled town north of Prague adapted by the Nazis as a Jewish ghetto, a staging post en route to Auschwitz. Ironically, it was also a place where Jewish art, above all music, could flourish, though suppressed elsewhere. Thus the Nazis could counter rumours of concentration camps and the Holocaust, as when a Red Cross delegation visited Terezin in 1944. Four composers, all to be transported from the town to die, stand out among the many artistic talents of the ghetto: Viktor Ullmann , HansKrasa, Pavel Haas and Gideon Klein.
Tonight's film, shot on location in Terezin and featuring survivors and archive film, introduces tomorrow's BBC2 performance of music (at
9.40pm) from the town and subsequent programmes on Radio 3 duringthe next week.

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.
