'OLD BACH.'
When John Sebastian Bach died in 1750 he was decently buried in the Johannes-Kirche, but no inscription marked his tomb, no special honour framed his obsequies, no manifestations of sorrow furrowed the city's countenance, and no publisher bid for his manuscripts. Leipzig was content to blot out the memory of its distinguisned citizen for nearly a hundred years.
The first public monument to Bach, which is shown in the engraving above, was erected in the courtyard of his old church, the Thomas-Kirche, in 1843, mainly owing to the enthusiasm of Mendelssohn. A more appropriate site could not have been found. The statue is placed immediately in front of the quarters in the School-house occupied by Bach and his family. On the second floor was Bach's study, the 'Componierstube.' In that room were composed the B minor Mass and the St. Matthew Passion. The programme of tonight's 'Prom' relay is wholly devoted to the music of Bach.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
