Mozart's ' Linz ' Symphony
Mozart's Symphony No. 36, in C, is called The Linz ' because it was written in the town of Linz. While staying there in 1783 with a certain Count Thun, Mozart gave a special concert. It is more than probable that he is referring to the ' Linz ' Symphony in the following letter: ' As I have not a single symphony with me, I am writing one for dear life, to be ready in time.'
Dvořák's Symphonic Variations
These Variations were originally composed in 1877 and numbered Op. 40, then were apparently forgotten for ten years even by the composer himself. They were resuscitated and revised in 1887 and sent to Richter, who produced them in London in May of that year.
The variations - twenty-eight in number-are essentially melodic (like Elgar's ' Enigma '), not harmonic-structural variations on the lines of Beethoven's greatest sets and those of Brahms-a fact that did not in the least interfere with Brahms's admiration of this Dvorak work.

: The Cellini Trio

The Cellini Trio consists of three well-known instrumentalists: Gordon Walker, who is principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra and was for ten years principal flute at Covent Garden; Geraint Williams, who is sub-principal cellist of the London Symphony Orchestra; and Roy Douglas, who is a well-known pianist and composer.

A notable feature of the Cellini Trio is the fact that all their programmes are not only very carefully rehearsed, but each number is specially arranged for their combination, as their aim is to perform everything in true chamber-music style.

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.
