Buxtehude
It is customary to speak of Buxtehude as a Danish composer. He was, however, born at Helsingborg, Sweden, in 1637. In 1668 he was appointed organist at the Marienkirche, Liibeck, and remained at Liibeck until his death in 1707. Under his regime the city became one of the most important musical centres of Northern Europe.
' As a composer says Pohl,
' Buxtehude's strength lay in his free organ compositions and generally in instrumental music, pure and simple.' In this field he was Bach's immediate forerunner.
Leclair Jean-Marie Leclair (1697-1764) was one of the most distinguished of French violinists and violin composers. After a period of study in Italy, he returned to Paris in 1728 and for eight years was one of the outstanding musicians both at court and in the then newly-instituted ' Concert Spirituel ', the celebrated concert series which remained one of the most important features of French musical life until the Revolution. But in 1736 he appears to have left the ' Concert Sprituel ' to devote himself to composition and teaching.
Technically Leclair introduced numerous bold innovations in writing for the violin; for instance, the very free employment of double-stops.

(Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Douglas Ctarke ' Brigg Fair ' is a Lincolnshire folk song that tells how ' It was the fifth of August, The weather fine and fair,
Unto Brigg Fair I did repair, For love I was inclined.'
For once the course of true love runs smoothly; the singer meet* his sweetheart, takes her ' lily-white hand ' (' and merrily was her heart '), and swears eternal fidelity. That is all.
About the quietly beautiful, lilting melody of the old song , the composer has woven a dreamy orchestral meditation that has long been recognised as one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century English music.

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.
