Sound & The Fury

Beginning on Tuesday 12th February, on BBC Four, The Sound and the Fury: A Century of Modern Music traces the turbulent history and ground-breaking music of the last century, uncovering how the last 100 years have changed music and the way we listen to sound forever.

In the first episode, Wrecking Ball, a host of renowned composers explore the foundations of contemporary music and discuss why 20th century composers deliberately chose to discard the traditional structures of form, melody and rhythm in favour of consonance and dissonance.

The three episodes also feature specially filmed performances from a number of ensembles including the London Sinfonietta, which can been seen in full on the Red Button after each programme. This week features music by Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern and Charles Ives.

Red Button digital text changes

Over the next weeks, we'll be making some changes to the BBC's Red Button text services. We are performing some technical work behind the scenes to remove the final parts of the publishing processes still powered by the recently discontinued Ceefax service.

We've tried to keep any changes to the public service to a minimum, but there will be some alterations to the content provided. For full details of the changes are listed on the Red Button service on p998.


Red Button events on Virgin Tivo

Right now Connected Red Button does not currently feature eTV (enhanced TV) streams on the Virgin TiVo service. While users can already enjoy live coverage and highlights from a range of Sporting events on the service, we are working to extend this capability to a wider range of events, on and off-schedule content during 2013.

Please note that there was delay to this blog going live due to technical difficulties.

    Since the changes have taken place, have not been able to receive BBC red button text service properly. I can get the front page index, but every time i choose a page, it reverts back to tv. Is this just temporary?

    Re 6. Three @BBCRedButton tweets yesterday say, "We are planning to re-enable the split-screen feature of Red Button digital text in the near future."

    Possibly more will be on the next Whats On post from the Content Team.

    The good news is that Community, Disability and Read Heat are all back: to find them, please look under the News Index (page 102 on DTT) and keep scrolling down to the last choice.

    Ah, the changes mentioned on page 998 have taken effect.

    Re my post here and on the previous Red Button post. Thank you so much for the announcement that 1040 and 1050 are being moved to the news index. This is very good news.

    Thank you, Tess.

    Please would it be possible to revise this post to include the Tag so it shows on http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/internet/tags/Red_Button?

    And, please, would the Red Button Team please explain why the decision has been made to stop publishing Read Hear material provided for the service by CSV Action Network: would it not be possible for this material to be hosted on the Ouch! part of BBC Online and hence published on Red Button Text again?
