: Composer of the Week: Schutz

With Donald MacLeod.
2: Family Troubles. Heinrich Schutz had more than his fair share of family upsets and grief. The first of a long line of bereavements began with the death of his much loved wife Magdalena in 1625, leaving him with two young daughters to bring up. Schutz never remarried but busied himself with producing the Becker Psalter , a collection of part-songs based on the psalm paraphrases of the Leipzig theologian Cornelius Becker. More surprisingly, Schutz's long period of mourning also found him pushing musical frontiers forward by writing what may be the first German oratorio.

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.
