: ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

Max Rostal (violin)
BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Sibelius's Violin Concerto was written in 1903 and revised in 1905. In the first and last movements the dark quality of the violin's two lower strings is exploited to the full, while even the brilliance of the top string has a bleak effect. In the slow movement, however, the violin is allowed to pour out the composer's feelings in one of the most beautiful themes ever written. D.C.

: QUEEN VICTORIA'S JUBILEES

by Gwendolen Stephenson
Seventy years ago this week Queen Victoria celebrated her first Jubilee. Lady Stephenson, then a little girl of ten, watched the procession from a wall on the Thames Embankment, and she recalls the excitement and enthusiasm of the time. She adds some random recollections of life in those distant days -not such good old days, in her opinion, as many of her contemporaries would have us believe.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
