: SUNDAY ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

The BBC Orchestra (Section B)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Julius Harrison
Beethoven's ' Consecration' Overture was composed for the opening of the Josephstadt Theatre in Vienna in 1822. The music, containing a fanfare and a fugue, is
. consequently rather ceremonial in form, though in spirit it is lively enough.
Two years later it was performed again, in the historic Karnthnerthor Theatre, Vienna, on May 7, 1824, when the greater part of the Mass in D and the Ninth Symphony were produced. The concert was promoted by a number of influential people in Vienna, including Prince Lichnowsky, and the enthusiasm of the audience was tremendous.

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of King Haakon's Fund for Relief in Norway, by Admiral Sir Edward Evans , K.C.B., D.S.O. (Evans of the Broke)
This fund was launched at a Mansion House meeting on Friday,
May 17. Its purpose is to relieve the immediate distress among the Norwegians in Norway who have suffered as a result of the Nazi invasion.
If sufficient funds become available, part of the money will be utilised in rebuilding the shattered homes of the people and assisting them to reconstruct their lives.
The most stringent precautions will be taken to prevent any money subscribed in this country passing into enemy hands.
Admiral Evans has recently returned from Norway, where he had first-hand opportunities of seeing the havoc wrought by the Nazis.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Admiral Sir Edward Evans , Norway House, [address removed]

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
