: Composer of the Week: Mozart

The middle years of the 1780s were the happiest and most successful of Mozart's life... He was living in Vienna with his wife,
Constanze, and was much in demand both as composer and performer. And his genius was recognised as much by his fellow composers as by the general public. Today Donald Macleod introduces some of the music Mozart wrote and played during those hectic years.

: BBC Proms 2000

Live from the Royal Albert Hall , London. "If ever a composer showed polyphony in its greatest strength and employed the most hidden secrets of harmony with the most skilled artistry, it was certainly our late lamented Bach."

Rich in invention, it rushes onward to the momentous climax of the death of Christ. Paul Agnew (tenor), Sanford Sylvan
(baritone), Ruth Ziesak (soprano), Michael Chance (countertenor), Toby Spence
(tenor), Gerald Finley (bass-baritone), Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, St James 's Baroque Players, conductor Ivor Bolton Bach StJohn Passion, BWV245 (Part 1)

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.
