This is the first broadcast in an ambitious series of programmes that will stretch through the school broadcasting year. Those concerned with the preparation of the course have succeeded in finding a unique method of presenting the fascinations of the past to their young audience.
The opening twelve programmes will deal with the story of the world up to the arrival of early man.
Many listeners will remember
Honor Wyatt's scripts in the ' If I were British ' series last term. In addition to this she has written programmes for the Children's Hour, and presented one or two gramophone programmes.

On August I, 1781, Mozart wrote : ' Yesterday young Stephanie (a librettist) gave me a libretto for an opera. It is a very good one on a Turkish subject..... The overture, the chorus in the first act, and the last chorus of the whole thing I shall work in Turkish music '.
The story is concerned with a Spanish lady, Constanza, who with her English maid Blonda, is captured by the Turkish Pasha Selim and taken to his palace.
It was Mozart's first German opera, and has spoken dialogue between the arias and ensembles.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
