Domenico Cimarosa , an eighteenth-century Neapolitan composer, secured world-wide fame with his operas. His biggest success was The Secret Marriage, which was first performed in 1792 before Leopold II at Vienna, where Cimarosa was at that time Court Kapellmeister. The music of this opera still retains its freshness and brilliance, which are reflected to the full in the Overture. In style Cimarosa's music, with its inexhaustible flow of simple and charming melodies, has much in common with that of Mozart.
Thomas Dunhill , composer, teacher, and lecturer, was born at Hampstead in 1877. He entered the Royal College of Music, studying the piano under Franklyn Taylor , and composition under Stanford. At the age of twenty he won a scholarship for composition and several of his works were performed at the College concerts. In 1899 he became Assistant Music Master at Eton College and also held a professorship at the R.C.M. In 1905 he left Eton, bu.t has continued ever since to be on the staff of the R.C.M.
His compositions range over practically every form in music, but it is as a miniaturist that he excels -songs, piano pieces, and his shorter chamber and orchestral works.

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.
