Conducted by AYLMER BUESST
BÉLA BARTÓK, one of the most intensely national of all present-day composers, became early in life deeply interested in the genuine Magyar folk-music, both in the original and in its corrupted gypsy form, and he resolved to make a thorough study of this music. In this study he had the collaboration of Zoltan Kodaly, and together they collected and preserved in published form a valuable accumulation of folk-music. The effect of this activity on the music of Bartok is here and there evident in all his later works. But as a creative composer, his is one of the most profoundly original minds of today, and owes only its origin to nationalism. His work is like that of no other living composer, and its style and treatment derives from Bartdk's disregard of much that passed for essential in the music of a long tradition.

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.
