Michael Haydn (1737-1806) entered St. Stephen's, Vienna, as a chorister in 1745, five years after his brother,
Joseph. There he learnt to play the violin and organ and was soon proficient enough to act as deputy organist at St. Stephen's. His life appears to have been spent in the service of the Church. As a composer he was almost as prolific as his brother, whose genius, however, overshadowed him. He wrote about 360 compositions for the Church, thirty symphonies, and many other choral and instrumental works. The most famous of his pupils was Weber.

: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Although it was customary during the middle years of the nineteenth century for army bands to be conducted by German bandmasters, the band of the Corps of Royal Engineers was formed in 1865 under an English bandmaster. In 1871, however, an Austrian Herr Sawerthal , became bandmaster, and during the nineteen years he held that post the band reached a high standard and became nearly as well known as the Guards bands.
During the ' nineties' the band, once more under an English conductor, played frequently at State functions, and during the present century the Corps of Royal Engineers' Band has held its own in popular esteem and worthily upheld the best traditions of military music.

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.
