Wetzler's career as composer and conductor has identified him with the United States as well as central Europe. Born in Frankfurt, of American parents (he has retained his American citizenship), he spent his childhood in America and returned to Europe in 1882 to study at the Frankfurt Conservatoire under Clara Schu/nann, Humperdinck, Hugo Heermann, and Scholz. In 1892 he made New York his home, holding the post of organist of Old Trinity Church from 1897 to 1901. He next organised the Wetzler Symphony Orchestra, which Richard Strauss conducted jointly with Wetzler in a festival of his own music in New York. It was on this occasion (1904) that the ' Symphonia Domestica ' received its first performance. The following year Wetzler returned to Germany and devoted himself to conducting. He subsequently held posts as conductor at the Hamburg Opera and the Municipal Opera houses of Elberfeld, Riga, Halle, Lubeck, and Cologne. Wetzler has also conducted the Philharmonic Orchestras of Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich, and the Guerzenich in Cologne. He now lives at Ascona (Switzerland), dividing his time between composition and guest-conducting in various European cities.

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.

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.
