Left unfinished at the composer's death in 1924, Doktor Faust is part mystery play, part festival play and part Passion. And

: Jazz on 3

Paul Motian Trio 2000. Drums titan
Paul Motian brought his latest groupto London's Queen Elizabeth Hall forthe London Jazz Festival last November and tonight's concert was the result. With bassist Scott LaFaro , Motian redefined the role of the rhythm section injazz while he was a member of the Bill Evans piano trio of the late fifties and early sixties. His efforts to make the drums an equal voice - interacting with the melody ratherthan just providing accompaniment -were later appreciated by band leaders Keith Jarrett , Carla Bley and Don Cherry. Motian has led his own groups since the late seventies, with the help of such artists as Bill Frisell and Joe Lovano. His trio tonight features saxophonist Chris Potter and another
Bill Evans collaborator, Marc Johnson , on bass. Producers Steve Shepherd and Kathryn Willgress

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.
