Tone Poem, 'En Saga' ('A Legend')...Sibelius

Sibelius's music expresses the ruggedness of his native Finland and its people, as all who listen to his Finlandia (to be given later this evening) may gather.
He has received high honour in his own country, for a year or so ago. on his sixtieth birthday, the President of Finland personally bestowed on him a high decoration, and Parliament doubled the pension of 50.000 marks a year, which he has received for the last eleven years. A national subscription of 270,000 marks was also raised in his honour.
In En Saga we are to imagine we are listening to an old tale told by a bard-a tale of heroic doings and strange perils, of pathos, love, and mystery, of tragedy and triumph.

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.
