Haydn wrote twelve symphonies in all for Salomon, the impresario who brought him to London-six on the first visit in 1791 and six on the second in 1794. They are acknowledged to be the finest of all Haydn's
[Home Service continued overleaf hundred odd symphonies, and it is pleasant to reflect that London's hospitality was the occasion of Haydn's surpassing himself.
For some unknown reason, the No. 104 in D, the second of the Salomon symphonies, is known as the ' London ' Symphony. It represents Haydn at his greatest as a symphonist, and it may well be compared, with most of the others of this series, with the best symphonies of Mozart.

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.
