: Performance on 3

British Music Focus
"The most thrilling experience of my musical life". That's how the British composer Alistair Hinton felt about the first recording of his biggest work - the amazing String Quintet. It took him eight years (on and off) to write - and no wonder: it lasts almost three hours, and two of those hours are the finale, a huge song-cycle that launches a soprano soloist on a voyage of self-discovery through the power of music. Alistair Hinton joins Andrew McGregor to introduce this first complete broadcast.
Sarah Leonard (soprano), Jagdish Mistry and Marcus Barham-Stevens (violins),
Levine Andrade (viola), Michael Stirling (cello), Corrado Canonici (double bass)

: Composer of the Week:Mozart the Keyboard Player

3/5. Nothing lasts for ever, not even for Mozart. As 1784 turned to 1785 and his astonishingly successful year of subscription concerts faded into memory, Mozart's career took what the Viennese public saw as a couple of faltering steps. Donald Macleod weighs up the evidence. Piano Sonata in C minor, K457 Mitsuko Uchida Piano Concerto No 18 in B flat, K456 (slowmvt) Richard Goode , Orpheus Chamber Orchestra Piano Quartet in G minor, K478 Sonnerie

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.

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.
