: Composer of the Week: Bach

2/5. Donald Macleod explores the weekly teaching routine that Bach established in Leipzig following his arrival there in the spring of 1723. Daily singing lessons and instrumental teaching allowed Bach to get the city's young musicians into shape and ready for one of the most ambitious musical projects ever undertaken - Bach's Leipzig cantata cycles, which provided music for the complete ecclesiastical year.

Garry Kasparov , often described as the greatest chess player of all time, talks to Philip Dodd about the lessons the game offers as a life philosophy. Since retiring from chess, Kasparov has turned his attention to business and politics, and in his homeland of Russia he remains a vigorous promoter of free and open democracy. Dodd asks if the intellectual demands of chess are enough to sustain even a figure like Kasparov in the choppy waters of contemporary politics. Producer Phil Tinline

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
