: Morning Performance

A Magpie Called Igor
Igor Stravinsky was one of the most influential composers of the 20th century. But he was also a musical magpie-thieving shamelessly from earlier composers to create something new. This week,
Stravinsky expert Jonathan Cross finds out how and why he did it. 1: Reworking the Past. For his 1920 ballet Pulcinella,
Stravinsky rewrote 18th-century pieces by Pergolesi and Domenico Gallo - and almost single-handedly invented neoclassicism in music. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto
No 3 in G, BWV1048, is placed alongside Stravinsky's Concerto in E flat
(Dumbarton Oaks). Plus music by fellow neoclassicists Ravel and Poulenc and a more recent exponent, Michael Torke.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.
