The first of two programmes introduced by A. Hyatt King with Illustrations played by Martin Penny and Viola Tunnard
(piano duet) and Musica da Camera
Mozart left more music unfinished than most composers. He broke off not only in the middle of compositions that were not going well but in the middle of some that would surely have been masterpieces. Fragments to be played tonight include music for string quintet, quartet, and trio; part of a quintet for clarinet, basset-horn, and strings, and another in B flat for clarinet and strings; and the beginning of a two-piano sonata in B flat.

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.
