: The Early Music Show

Deborah: Handel the Charming Brute and the Birth of Oratorio
In 1733 Handel started work on his first purpose-written English oratorio, Deborah. However, the piece was not popular with audiences at the time, partly due to Handel's doubling of ticket prices. The composer was in severe financial difficulty: his partnership with the impresario Heidegger was collapsing, he was being constantly lambasted by the Prince of Wales and his cronies, and a cartoon was doing the rounds showing
Handel as a greedy hog. Catherine Bott explores Deborah and Handel's corresponding misfortunes.

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.
