The Tchaikovsky Experience
After 1.00pm/6.00 R3 Tchaikovsky's life was punctuated by black bouts of depression, and although there is much that is abundantly joyful in his music there are also works that reflect his melancholia. His opera Eugene Onegin has a sad and yearning heart, and is based on Pushkin's verse drama about a cynical aristocrat who comes to regret that he once spurned the love of a naive country girl, Tatyana. Today's recording features the suitably brooding Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky as Onegin. And in Symphony at Six there's the first of this week's complete cycle of Tchaikovsky's symphonies: Winter Daydreams. David Gillard

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.
