Relayed from
The Residence, Salzburg
In Salzburg, the most lovely ' Italian' city in the whole of Austria, the birthplace of Mozart, the now famous Festival runs its course each August. To this little city, no larger than, say, Hereford or Winchester, come all the scintillating stars of Teutonic art, and for a month devote their whole time and talents to performing opera and drama in circumstances and surroundings that make the Salzburg Festival an unique event of the international artistic year.
The whole city is given over to the Festival. Nothing else happens but Festival-except that visitors are housed and fed. Performances take place in the two theatres, the Mozarteum and the Festspielhaus, in the Cathedral, and on the Cathedral Square, and when there are no performances the city sleeps. Over it all hovers the genius of Mozart. There are even those who, with more poetry than truth, declare that in ghostly person he is present and presides.

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.
