: Music from the Dead Composers

by GEOFFREY SKELTON
Mrs Rosemary Brown , a widow living in Balham. spends most of her waking hours writing music that, she claims, is dicfated to her by the spirits of Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt, and other great composers. The music bears an extraordinary resemblance to that of the composers from whom it is alleged to come; but Mrs Brown 's own musical training is elementary and fragmented. In the course of his enquiry into this phenomenon Mr Skel ton has interviewed musicians, psychologists, spiritualists. and of course Mrs Brown herself.
The programme includes a recording of Mrs Brown at work with Liszt, and a performance of their completed work.
Produced by DANIEL SNOWMAN (To be repeated on 17 Dec)

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.

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.
