: Morning Performance

A Magpie Called Igor
4: Forbidden Fruit. Jonathan Cross follows
Stravinsky's forays into the worlds of jazz and pop, including the Tango-Waltz-
Ragtime from The Soldier's Tale, and the Ebony Concerto - written forjazz clarinettist Woody Herman. Cross also shows how, like Stravinsky, Mozart and Saint-Saens borrowed from other composers. Plus the story since: jazz meets serialism and the spiritual in Bernd Aloys Zimmermann 's Trumpet Concerto Nobody Knows de Trouble I See;
Louis Andriessen sets out to "breakdown a few musical barriers" betweenjazz, pop, folk and classical in De Volharding; and Martin Butler 's Hootenanny, composed for the Orkest de Volharding, who took their name from Andriessen'swork.

: Performance on 3

Live from the Wigmore Hall, London. Penny Gore presents a recital by the popular
American virtuoso Joshua Bell. He presents a typically fascinating programme, including a late Schumann rarity that was suppressed by the composer's widow and gives every indication that tragedy was never far away, and Beethoven's shocking final Violin Sonata, in which the spotlight falls as much on the pianist as on the violinist himself. And Bell promises to announce a few extra pieces along the way. Joshua Bell (violin), Ana-Maria Vera (piano) Schumann Violin Sonata No 3 in A minor, OpPosth

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
