Cherubini's long life overlapped those of Bach's sons and of Tchaikovsky, thus linking up nearly two centuries of music. His own work covered almost as wide a field as that long period suggests, and it is all immensely dignified and sincere, singularly free from any mannerisms or of pandering to the popular taste of his age. Anacreon was an opera-ballet in two acts, produced at the Paris Opera in October, 1803. Only the splendid overture is now known.
Towards the end of 1840 Robert Schumann married Clara Wieck , the pianist. His warm-hearted admiration for his wife's gifts as a pianist, her devotion to the works which he wrote for her to play, acted and reacted on each other with the happiest results. The first movement of Schumann's Piano Concerto, composed in 1841, was intended at first to stand alone as a Fantasy. Four years later the other two movements were added to complete the concerto as we know it now.

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.
