: Music Restored

La Folia. Lucie Skeaping finds out why dance which originated in Portugal in the late 15th century has inspired so many composers. The name literally means mad or empty headed, and until the late 1670s the dance was very wild and noisy.
Composers such as Vivaldi, Marais and CPE Bach later began to use the tune as a basis for more sedate music, though still retaining the unique character of the dance.


Unknown: Lucie Skeaping

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.
