: An Afternoon Concert

The Station Orchestra
conducted by Warwick Braithwaite

This sparkling little work is one of Mozart's lesser-known Symphonies. It is supposed to have been composed at Salzburg in 1713-in which year Mozart wrote a Mass, four Symphonies, six String Quartets, and several other things!
The work is rather unusual in form, for the 'classical' period. It consists only of three short Movements, and there is no sort of finality at the end of the First and Second Movements, the First leading straight into the Second, the Second into the Third.

The dashing youth Phaeton, having been permitted by his father, the Sun, to drive the fiery chariot, loses control of the horses. The car of flame is approaching the earth, and must set it on fire if nothing can intervene. At the last instant Jupiter hurls a thunderbolt, saving the universe but destroying the rash youth.
This is the story Saint-Saens illustrates in his Symphonic Poem.

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.
