SECOND only to Handel's Messiah in the affections of British music lovers, Haydn's big Oratorio deals in picturesque fashion with the Creation of tho World, of the growth of herb and flower, and finally with the coming of Man. There can be Taut few listeners who do not know at least parts of it, and who have not enjoyed its fresh and charming melody, set forth as it is with fine expressive orchestral accompaniment.
A man of devout and simple, piety, Haydn approached this task in a spirit of sincere humility. In his own words; ' never was I so pious as when composing the Creation. I knelt down every- day and prayed God to strengthen me for my task.'

' THE MOWER DAMON' is a set of variations on an original theme. The score is prefixed by the following quotation from Andrew Marvdll 's 'Clorinda and Damon,' which is the key to -the mood of the work.
I am the mower Damon, known
By all the meadows I have mown} On me the morn her dews distils Before her darling daffodils,
And, coming home, the evening sweet In cowslip water bathes my feet.

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.
