David Schofield , Fiona Walker By 1791 Mozart's spirits were low, his finances in disarray, his health poor. Yet the year was to be marked with some of the most magnificent music that he ever composed, including the Quintet in D, the opera The Magic Flute and the Requiem Mass.
In December 1790 a farewell dinner was given in Vienna for Joseph Haydn , who was about to leave for London. At their parting Mozart was in tears. 'We are taking our last farewell in this world,' he said. But it was Mozart himself who was to die, leaving Haydn to mourn. Lighting JOHN DIXON Sound ADRIAN STOCKS

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.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
