Leader, Alfred Cave

Gasparo Spontini (1774-1851) was one of the greatest Italian composers of opera of his period. His opera La Vestale was finished about the year 1805 and was first performed in Paris with enormous success on December 15, 1807. At the same time it is interesting to hear that a good many people considered the music to be the height of modernity. A well-known physician took a deaf friend to hear it, as he considered the ' noisy ' music was an excellent remedy for deafness!

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.
