: Music Weekly

from 'the garden of Denmark' Nielsen's music: vast and incomprehensibly un-Danish in scope, yet only understandable in its utterly Danish - or maybe even utterly Fiinen - context
(Nielsen catalogue in Odense Music Library)
In March, the new Carl Nielsen Concert Hall and Museum opened in Odense, on the small island of Fyn - Nielsen's birthplace. With scholars, archivists and guides,
Michael Oliver tours the museum and unearths a different Nielsen, the man of the soil, steeped in folk-traditions and a love of the elements.

: Back to the Future: Authenticity and Early Music

The 'authenticity' of early music, once the pursuit of a coterie, is now a vastly popular phenomenon. But how far is it possible to be authentic? Is a historically faithful approach to performance desirable? Is it merely a 20th-century neurosis or is it a major threat to the traditions of the musical estabishment?
Nicholas Kenyon discusses these and other questions with Julianne Baird , Howard Mayer Brown ,
Reinhardt Goebel , Nikolaus Harnoncourt , Christopher Hogwood , Gustav Leonhardt , Nicholas McGegan , Robert Morgan ,
Christopher Page , Richard Taruskin and Robert Winter.

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.
