: Vintage Years

Celebrating Salzburg
Concluding the series in which
Richard Osborne explores the story of the Salzburg Festival. 6: The Nineties
Karajan's successor as artistic director was Gerard Mortier , who has made efforts to institute radical new policies. An often controversial emphasis on contemporary music - with a new, biennial festival within a festival, Zeitfluss - radical operatic productions, and residencies by orchestras and companies from outside the German-speaking community have gone hand in hand with a continuing commitment to some of the festival's more traditional fare.
With contributions from Gerard
Mortier, Financial Director
Hans Landesmann , Markus Hinterhauser of Zeitfluss, critics, and Count Johannes Walderdorff , owner of the Goldener Hirsch hotel.
Producer David Gallagher

A six-part series telling the story of South African jazz over the last 50 years.
1: American Accents, Shebeen Sounds
Born in the townships and mixing African forms and American influences, South African jazz developed its own distinctive voice in the 1940s and 50s. John Fordham investigates its early roots, its flowering as a genuinely popular music, and the runaway success of the jazz opera King Kong by Todd Matshikiza.

: Jazz Concert

A concert given at last year's Glasgow Jazz Festival by the Danilo Perez Trio and the Nat Adderly Quintet, introduced by Brian Morton.
Danilo Perez was bom in Panama in 1966 and has established himself as a leader among the new generation of jazz musicians. The brothers Adderiey set the standard for accessible hard-bop in the late fifties, and since Cannonball's death, Nat has continued to espouse the virtues of straight, no-nonsense bop, while his quintets have acted as forcing grounds for young talent. In this concert, the young talent is Mark Gross. Producer Dave Batchelor

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.
