LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. North America and Europe are now on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone and eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. UK, Ireland and Portugal add one (1) hour to GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add two (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 10 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

SPECIAL PROGRAM: Composer of the Week
Friends and unfinished business

Franz Schubert (1797-1828) Episode 3 of 5

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and features one of his string quartets every day.

Today the focus is on the year 1820, when Schubert was aged 23. Donald Macleod looks into Schubert's friendships, people who rallied round helping him out, including paying his rent whilst he worked on establishing himself as a freelance composer. However, some of his friends cheerfully began calling him "The Tyrant" due to Schubert's tendency to occasionally respond to these kindnesses harshly; they began to see a different side to his nature.

Music featured includes an extract from two unfinished works, his oratorio Lazarus and the Quartet Movement in C minor. Plus we hear one of the best loved of all Schubert's Goethe settings, Erlkönig,which was first performed in this year, and the glorious Song of the Spirits Over the Waters.
