Mozart's so-called ' Haffner' Symphony originated in a serenade composed in 1782 at his father's request for a festivity at the house of his
Salzburg friends, the Haffners. It was written in great haste; so great, that when his father returned the score to him, Mozart was quite surprised ' at its effectiveness
The six-movement Serenade was cut down to a symphony the following year by the omission of the introductory march and one of the minuets, but the serenade-like character of part of the finale reminds one of the origin of the work.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Albert Coates
The history of Borodin's Second Symphony is closely linked with that of his opera Prince Igor. The first ideas for the symphony occurred to him early in 1869, but in April of that year Stassov suggested the opera subject to him, and for a time he devoted all his energies to Igor. Then he decided (temporarily) that the subject was unsuitable. ' Don't worry about it ', he wrote to Stassov. 'The material won't be wasted. It will all go into my Second Symphony.'
Accordingly the first movement of the symphony was written in 1871. During the period 1874-76 he was working at both opera and symphony, and the last two movements of the symphony were based on themes originally intended for an epilogue to Igor.

: FRENCH TALK

' L'Art de Dire '
Yvette Guilbert
Madame Yvette Guilbert is on one of her periodic visits to this country, and, as on previous occasions, will take the opportunity to broadcast. As a diseuse she is internationally famous, and her conception of ' Vart de dire', for which there is no satisfactory translation in English, may fairly be described as unique. Today's broadcast is the first of the new weekly series of French Talks and Readings, and it may be considered fortunate that it is being given by someone who has so complete an understanding of the spoken word. Madame Yvette Guilbert will be introduced at the microphone by E. M. Stephan.

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.

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.
