Conducted by JOHAN HOCK

Arcangelo Corelli-who, living between 1653 and 1713, was of the musical generation before Handel-is considered the father of violin playing as we know it today. He was one of the greatest violinists of his time and instituted many reforms in style and performance, but it is his compositions that have more materially benefited us. His most important works are the concerti grossi. These consist in the fashion of the time, mainly of dance movements.

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
