: Omnibus: Goodnight Vienna

Introduced by Humphrey Burton

"It's a thankless job.... The more successful an opera director is in Vienna, the less chance he will have to survive ... They want quality and when they have it they do anything they can to destroy it."
That is the American conductor Lorin Maazel's assessment at the end of his surprisingly brief reign as director of the Vienna State Opera, one of the most powerful - but precarious - jobs in music. Maazel's illustrious predecessors include Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, Karl Bohm and Herbert von Karajan. Every one of them left office unhappily - bruised, embittered or simply exhausted.
Presented by Richard Baker, this film follows Maazel through his last months at the Staatsoper and through the relentless criticism that led to his premature farewell to Vienna.

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.
