Handel's Messiah was first performed in Dublin in April, 1742. The soloists included Mrs. Cibbers, the actress, who sang the contralto part. The oratorio had a magnificent success, and it was repeated in the following June. So great was the crowd at the first performance that the ladies of the audience were asked to come without hoops, and men without swords. When the work was first given in England in the early part of 1743, at Covent Garden Theatre, it was practically a failure, although Samson, given at eight performances just before then, had been a triumphant success. Only when it was performed in the Foundling Hospital in 1750 did it win its way to the hearts of Londoners, and since then it is safe to say that it has been the most popular of all oratorios.

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.
