Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor though still rather Mozartian in manner is far more individual in style than the No. 2 in B flat. It points the way to the last two concertos which are highly original in both thought arid construction. The C minor Concerto was composed in 1800, the year that also brought forth the six string quartets, Op. 18, the Piano Sonata in B flat, Op. 22, and the String Quintet, Op. 29. It is a clearly designed work full of charming melodic invention, brilliant piano writing, and fine orchestral effect.

The ' Siegfried Idyll', one of Wagner's early instrumental works-perhaps the loveliest thing he ever wrote-was not originally intended for the world in general. It was Wagner's personal gift to his second wife, and it was only later that he decided to publish it and permit its public performance. For several years Wagner had been living in retirement at Tribschen with Cosima, the divorced wife of von Biilow, and in 1869 she bore him a son, whom they named Siegfried. Next year he married her and on her birthday (Christmas Day) gave her this delightful surprise —the' Siegfried Idyll ', played by a little band placed on the stairs outside her bedroom door.

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.
