James Naughtie traces the history of 1,000 years of classical music in this landmark BBC Radio series. Broadcaster and music enthusiast James Naughtie uncovers the roots of our music and explores its historical context. His journey reveals how composers and performers, princes and patrons, and the chance happenings of the past have built a classical tradition that is the soundtrack to our history and tells a glittering and inspiring story.

The twentieth century musical landscape includes two World Wars, the beginnings of Jazz, the Sixties and the impact of technology on the music-making of an extraordinary century.
