THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED
ORCHESTRA
(Leader, FRANK CANTELL )
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
MENDELSSOHN'S Overture, an inspiration from his visit to the wonderful cave in the Isle of Staffa, has been known by various names. On the first copy of the score, written at Rome in 1830, the piece is entitled The Lonely Island. A second copy (an amended score) bears the name The Hebrides. The name by which the Overture is usually known is that given in our programme. The opening theme came into the composer's mind as he was rowed into the great cave.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
