: 'Mozart'

A play for broadcasting, in eleven scenes, by C. WHITAKER-WILSON , Author of ' Sir Christopher Wren'
Whitaker-Wilson follows up his recent successful dramatization of Sir Christopher .Wren with Mozart, which he describes as ' a drama of a life.' The life of a musician lends itself particularly well to radio presentation, as Rooke Ley's Chopin proved. Mozart is told in eleven scenes, ranging from the composer's infant prodigy years in 1777 in Salzburg to 1792, when Haydn seeks for his pauper's grave in the cemetery in Vienna. One of the most interesting episodes is that in which the seventeen-year-old Beethoven improvises before Mozart. One of the themes used in this scene has been specially composed by the author, the other is taken from one of Beethoven's early sonatas. This promises to be one of the outstanding dramatic broadcasts of the year.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
