Concerto in C minor for two harpsichords and string orchestra played by Helma Eisner (harpsichord) Rolf Reinhardt (harpsichord)
The Pro Musica String Orchestra,
Conductor. Rolf Reinhardt on a gramophone record
The C minor Concerto for two harpsichords and strings has been assumed by several musicologists to be Bach's transcription of a lost Concerto in D minor-which some think was for two violins and strings, and others, for oboe, violin, and strings. Tonight Bach's well-known two-harpsichord version can be heard, followed at 8.35 by Max Schneider 's conjectural reconstruction.

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.
