: THE SCOTTISH STUDIO ORCHESTRA

Glinka was the father of modern Russian music, and Russian and Ludmilla, his second opera, was one of the first big works of a really national character which the country produced. The tale is founded on an early poetical romance by Pushkin, and the poet himself had agreed to make it into an opera libretto for Glinka. Almost immediately afterwards, however, he was killed in a duel, and the libretto, as the composer used it, was the work of no fewer than five different hands.

When Beethoven composed his ballet of Protnetheus in 1800-1 he had been some four years in Vienna, and was gradually becoming known as a composer of importance. He had given his first concert at the Burg Theatre a year before, followed by others, and had spent the winter months composing this ballet, the first really big work, excepting the First Symphony, he had yet attempted. It was put on at the Burg Theatre on March 28, 1801, and scored a great and immediate success. It had a run of sixteen nights, almost a triumph. Haydn heard it, and liked it; he confessed as much to Beethoven.

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
