Ballet Music, 'The Mon of Prometheus' (1801)
It is a little odd, at this date, to think of Beethoven, stern, austere character that ho was, as being instructed by a dancer to write music for a ballet. Such was, however, the origin of the music for Prometheus. The ballot was designed by one Vigano, who, along with his wife, Maria Medina , enjoyed such a reputation in Vienna at the end of the eighteenth century that they were called on to produce a ballot in honour of the Empress. It was founded on the classical myth, and two statues, brought to life by music instead of by the stolen fire of the original story, are taught by the immortals on Parnassus in dancing, drama, and music. Beethoven wrote an Overture, an Introduction, and sixteen other numbers; the Overture is still fairly often played. The last movement has this special interest that one of its themes is used again in the last movement of the 'Eroica' symphony and in the Pianoforte Variations and Fugue, Op. 35.
Belonging, as it does, to Boethoven's earlier period, the music has some suggestions both of Mozart and of Haydn, bright, melodious, and, on the whole, slighter in form and structure than most of his orchestral music.

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.
