: Vintage Years

The seventh of eight programmes in which David Mellor celebrates musical personalities from the past. A Lighthouse and a Seagull
When Russian pianist Vladimir Viardo was in Paris earlier this year, he could hear someone practising. He knew it must be his old friend
Sviatoslav Richter , who died soon afterwards. Richter and Viardo's bond survived emigration to France and America. Now Viardo remembers
Richter the musician, who will always be a role model for others to emulate; and Slava the man, who suffered grievous loss under Stalin but had an ability to take off into realms of humour and fantasy. Including:
Rachmaninov Prelude in B flat, Op 23 No 2
Liszt Piano Concerto No 1 in E flat
(1st mvt)
LSO, conductor Kyrill Kondrashin Debussy Les Terrasses des

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.
