: MOZART

Divertimento in E flat (K.563) played by the Robert Masters String Trio:
Robert Masters (violin)
Nannie Jamieson (viola)
Muriel Taylor (cello)
Mozan put the finishing touches to this Divertimento ' of six pieces * on September 27, 1788 about six weeks after the completion of the ' Jupiter ' Symphony. ' Each movement of this trio is planned on broad lines.' says Jahn, and worked out with the greatest love and care, so that the trio-unquestionably one of Mozart's most admirable works-is a true " cabinet-piece " of chamber music. It is impossible to imagine anything more charming than the trio of the second minuet (i.e. the middle part of the fifth movement).

: HENRY WOOD PROMENADE CONCERTS

In this year of Goethe celebrations it is interesting to recall how the poet responded to Beethoven's Fifth Symphony when Mendelssohn played it to him on the piano, for the first time. Sitting in a dim comer of his room at Weimar, with the fire flashing from his aged eyes, Goethe found the beginning ' only astonishing and grandiose.' ' Then,' said Mendelssohn, ' he kept grumbling on. and after some time began again: " How big it is-quite wildl enough to bring the house about one's earsl and what it must be with all the people playing at once? " ' Afterwards, at dinner, we are told, ' in the middle of something else, he began about it again.'

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.
