8.25 Twenty Minutes: Use Your Ears
Armando lanucci takes a quirky look at how we listen to music, with the help of social psychologist David Hargreaves. Why is our response to music not only about the piece of music in itself, but also about the circumstances in which we hear it- whom we're with, whether we rushed to get there, what else is on our mind? How musically literate do you have to be to appreciate classical music? And does more music in our lives mean that we listen less?

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.
