Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conducted by Peter Montgomery
Mozart's opera Figaro had been produced in Prague and the whole city had gone mad about it. Mozart thereupon paid Prague a visit and his reception was such that it would seem too much could not be made of him. He promised them another opera, which presently turned out to be Don Giovanni. He also gave two Concerts during his stay, at one of which the Symphony No. 38 in D, already composed three years before, was played. It was received with such tremendous enthusiasm that it has since been known as the ' Prague' Symphony. Both technically and aesthetically it is worthy to rank next to the three last and greatest of Mozart's symphonies. It is in three movements and scored for a comparatively small orchestra, without clarinets and trombones. The whole work is bright, with a long slow movement full of beautiful melodies. The last movement is a riot of gaiety.

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

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.
