Researchers said Tuesday they'll reveal the results of DNA tests in a documentary film airing this weekend on Austrian television as part of a year of celebratory events marking the composer's th birthday. The tests were conducted last year by experts at the Institute for Forensic Medicine in the alpine city of Innsbruck, and the long-awaited results will be publicized in "Mozart: The Search for Evidence,'' to be screened Sunday by state broadcaster ORF.

Unfortunately the results from Mozart's niece and grandmother don't match with the skull, or with each other," Franz Grabner, from Austria's state ORF television, said last night.
