: Composer of the Week: Witold Lutoslawski

(1913-94). 1: Early Works to 1949
Witold Lutoslawski's family escaped the German occupation of Poland in 1915 by moving to Moscow, only to face the October Revolution. Lutoslawski was mobilised in Poland in 1939 and though he was arrested by the Germans he managed to escape and walked the 400 km back to Warsaw. Having survived the war by ekeing out a living playing piano on the cafe circuit, his First Symphony was the first major Polish work to be banned, in 1947, by the communist cultural commissars. Donald Macleod introduces the works that survive from this turbulent early period of the composer's life.

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.
