: THE ORCHESTRA

Fourteen illustrated talks by ROGER FISKE
9: Players and Conductors 1775-1850
Travelling virtuosi did much to improve the standard of orchestral playing from the eighteenth century onwards, and this in turn encouraged composers to write more difficult music. More difficult music needed conductors to keep it together. An invention by the instrument makers gave new power to the brass section.

White
Integrationism by Colin Edwards
In the summer of 1964, a group of white students from universities all over America took part in the Negro Voter Registration Campaign in Mississippi. Apart from occasional support in the Sit-ins and other demonstrations, this was the first time that white Americans had taken any organised part in the Civil Rights Struggle. Why had they suddenly decided to commit themselves in this way? What effect upon their own future was this essay in Integration going to have?

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
