The BBC is currently running a series called "The Beethoven Experience" on Radio 3. The website they've built around the radio series is a great resource for Beethoven fans, with lots of links to interesting background material.

Perhaps the best bit of the project, though, is the fact that they're making all nine of Beethoven's symphonies freely available as MP3 downloads the day after they're broadcast (in new recordings by the BBC Philharmonic conducted by Gianandrea Noseda).
