at the Court of the Emperor Maximilian I
In August 1493 Maximilian I, Archduke of Austria and King of the Romans, assumed the title of Holy Roman Emperor on the death of his father, the Emperor Friedrich. For the next 26 years he ruled over an Empire that was, at times, perilously close to collapse. Music seems to have been his refuge from the trials and tribulations of Imperial politics and unsuccessful campaigns; his musical establishment became second to none in all Europe.
Today's programme reflects something of the diversity of music to be heard at the Imperial Court: an instrumental piece by Isaac. German songs by Isaac and Ludwig Senfl , keyboard music attributed to Maximilian's great organist. Paul Hofhaimer , and a Kyrie from Isaac's vast collection of church music, the Choralis Constantinus: records

This is a shortened version, in Italian, of a programme submitted by RAI (Italian Radio and Television) in the drama section of the 1977 Italia Prize.

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.
