: Composer of the Week: Beethoven

With Donald Macleod.
4: Relationships
Beethoven was always in love, said his friend Franz Wegeler , "and sometimes made conquests that an Adonis would have found difficult, if not impossible!" He never married, though he is known to have proposed marriage at least twice. What is clearfrom his romantic attachments is that all too often he fell for society women, who were above his own class. Because of this, these relationships tended to have unsuccessful conclusions for Beethoven. Ich Denke Dein, WoO 74

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.
