From Birmingham

AMONG the almost innumerable smaller works of Mozart there are many ' gems of musical literature ' (as Tchaikovsky called them) which have never become well known. It was in order to bring some of this unknown Mozart before the public that Tchaikovsky wrote his Suite, Mozartiana. It consists of orchestral arrangements of three Piano Pieces and of the little Choral work Ave Verum Corpus (which, perhaps, was loss known in the Russia of 1887 than it is in the musical countries of today). It is this Prayer that wo are to hear.
THE action of Rimsky-Korsakov's Opera, The Snow Maiden, takes place in a mythical kingdom. There, on the first day of Spring, all young people who wish to wed come to receive the Tsar's blessing at a gathering held in the woodland. The clowns' dance rounds off the day's festivities.

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.
