: Composer of the Week: Mozart

3: Mozart in Mannheim and Paris
(1777-78). In 1777 Mozart set off for
Mannheim with his motherfor company. He was keen to secure a post in Mannheim with its famous orchestra but was soon distracted by a beautiful soprano called Aloysia Weber. After much persuasion Leopold Mozart convinced his son that Paris was a better option. But things did not go well there either- Mozart hated the French and their music, and then his mother's illness and subsequent death tested all his reserves.

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.
