: Composer of the Week: Barber

2/5 Barber's trip to Europe awakened a love for its society and culture that continued for the rest of his life. While spending the summer of 1936 in the Tyrolean Alps Barber set to work on a string quartet. But he was only happy with the slow movement which took on a life of its own as the famous Adagio for strings. Donald Macleod introduces Barber's own vocal arrangement, plus a performance of his first symphony, premiered while he was studying in Rome, and Barber's first major orchestral commission, written on the eve of the Second World War.

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.
