It was in 1796, when Napoleon's army was advancing irom Italy and threatening Vienna, that Haydn wrote his Mass in C major, to which he gave the Latin title Missa in tempore belli. The work is also sometimes known as the ' Kettledrum ' Mass. The background of war is suggested in the Agnus Dei by the use of trumpets and drums (thus anticipating Beethoven's employment of them in his Missa Solcnnis), and by the fanfare of wind instruments at the beginning of the Dona nobis pacem. H. R.

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.
