: This Week's Composer Luigi Boccherini

1743-1805
! If Haydn were to be regarded as the Beethoven of the 18th century, Boccherini would certainly be the Schubert.' (SEARLE) A deftly-worded compliment to Boccherini's lyrical talents, and yet his music always seems to be fighting a losing battle with the mature works of Haydn and Mozart and the early ones of Beethoven.
This week's programmes present a cross-section of Boccherini's instrumental music, much of it rarely heard and much that belies the usual Boccherini adjectives -'charming, elegant and polished ',

: * The Work of a Lifetime

Gilbert Scott , Henry Cole and the Albert Memorial
Stephen Bayley , architectural historian and critic, regards Scott's Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens as a masterpiece of the Neo-Gothic. Its birth, however, was a difficult one, and very revealing of the architectural mood of the 1860s. Sir George Gilbert Scott died 100 years ago, in 1878.

Dvorak Symphony No 8, In G (Port 1 of this concert can be seel on BBC1 on 6 August)
An unusual occurrence this evening on Radio 3-two opportunities of hearing The Revenge, Andrew Sachs 's play without words. After its original broadcast on 1 June, many listeners wrote to say they would have welcomed a chance to hear it twice on the same evening. So those listening at 9.20 will be able, two hours later, not only to check if they followed the plot correctly but also to compare speaker and headphone listening in stereo.

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.
