Vitezslav Novak (born in Bohemia in 1870), together with Joseph Suk and Janacek, is generally considered one of the leaders of modern Czech music. He was a favourite pupil of Dvorak, but his earlier works show more of the influence of Schumann and Brahms. Later in life Novak drew his inspiration from national sources, and some of his more important works are based on folk tunes. His output is large, and includes operas, symphonic poems, many choral works, songs, and chamber music. Much of his music has a distinct national flavour, as in the case of the present Piano Quintet.

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.
