: This Week's Composers

Obrecht and de la Roe
This week is devoted to music by two Flemish composers, both contemporaries of Josquin. Jacob Obrecht (c 1450-1505) worked principally at churches in Bruges, Antwerp, and his home town of Bergen op Zoom; while Pierre de la Rue (c 1460-1518) worked successively in the service of the Emperor Maximilian, Philip of Burgundy, and Margaret of Austria, Regent of The Netherlands. Both were primarily liturgical composers: Obrecht has 24 masses to his name, the graver and more austere de la Rue, over 30. But this week's programmes also include some of their instrumental pieces and chansons.

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.
