: Opera on 3: The Philosopher's Stone

In 1997 the American musicologist David Buch hit the headlines with the news that a fairy-tale opera produced in Vienna in 1790 - by the company which premiered The
Magic Flute a year later - included previously undiscovered music by Mozart. But what is just as surprising about Der Stein der Weisen - as can be heard in this broadcast of its British premiere in English from the Hampstead and Highgate Festival - is the high quality of the other numbers by Mozart's less famous collaborators Geri, Henneberg, Schack and Schikaneder.

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.
