Conductor, Mr. DUMMER Pianist, Mr. J. H. JONES
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
IN 1820 Rossini produced an Opera, Mahomet
II, Which was not a success. He had done extremely well with his earlier works, Tancredi, The Barber of Seville (his first opera) and others, but nearly every composer has a disappointment now and again. Like a careful, economical soul, Rossini saved up Mahomet, and when he was engaged to conduct Opera in Paris, served it up again as The Siege of Corinth. Then it was a success.

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.
