A Magpie Called Igor
2: 1 Got Rhythm. Jonathan Cross celebrates Igor Stravinsky's liberation of rhythm. The Rite ofSpringmay be the work with which Stravinsky famously broke the fetters of regular rhythm in western music, but it was in Les Noces that his new ideas reached their expressive peak, with pride of place given to percussion instruments. Plus A Night on the Bare Mountain by one of Stravinsky's great forebears, Musorgsky, and music by composers who learnt from Stravinsky's revolutionary example: George Antheil 's Ballet MCcanique,
Edgard Varese 's lonisation, Carl Orff , John Cage and Conlon Nancarrow.

: Performance on 3

Live from the Queen Elizabeth Hall ,
London. Handel's Joshua was one of the most popular of his oratorios in the 18th century and its lavish, dramatic score has ensured its enduring appeal. The libretto condenses the Old Testament account of Joshua and the Israelites, interweaving descriptions of the bloodthirsty campaigns against the cities of Jericho and Ai with a romantic sub-plot. Handel's depictions of the collapse of the walls of Jericho, the razing by fire of the city and the moment when Joshua stops the sun and moon in theirtracks are amongst some of his most inspired music. Handel Joshua

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.
