: Music for Queen Mary

Celebrations of the tercentenary of Henry Purcell continue with a concert of music written for Queen Mary, broadcast live from Westminster Abbey. The first half includes music from the coronation of William and Mary in 1689 and a Birthday Ode written for the Queen. In the second half there is a re-creation of music performed at her funeral in the Abbey 300 years ago today. The New London Consort and the Choir of Westminster Abbey are conducted by Martin Neary, one of Purcell's successors as organist at the Abbey. Kelly Hunter reads extracts from Queen Mary's diaries and letters, and John Woodvine takes the role of a chronicler to convey the atmosphere of the times. In an interval feature, historians Roy Porter and Nigel Llewellyn reflect on what mortality meant in 17th-century England. With sopranos Emma Kirkby and Evelyn Tubb, counter-tenor Michael Chance, tenor Ian Bostridge, baritone Stephen Richardson and bass Simon Birchall. Introduced by Nicholas Kenyon.

: Messengers from Moscow: South

Third of a four-part documentary series investigating what drove the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
In the 1960s, the old colonial empires were collapsing. Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev saw the chance of new triumphs for socialism. This documentary explores the Soviets' real intentions at two flash points - Cuba and Vietnam. Including interviews with leading Soviet spies and diplomats, and challenging myths, it traces the Cuban story from Moscow's first attempts to make contact with Fidel Castro, through the missile crisis, to Khrushchev's fall from power. His successor, Leonid Brezhnev, came to office in the wake of Khrushchev's humiliation to face escalating conflict in Vietnam. Brezhnev's support for the North was to lead him to the brink of war, not just with the US but with China.

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.
