Music by Wagner


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
(Part I)
Conducted by LESLIE HEWARD
Relayed from
The Town Hall, Birmingham
Overture, Faust
Forest Murmurs (Siegfried)
Wagner designed this Faust overture as the first movement of a Faust symphony, the idea of writing which is said to have come to him after hearing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony rehearsed in the Conservatoire. He was then a young man in Paris, heavy with disappointment and very near starvation, and to fit his mood he chose as his subject matter the Faust of Goethe. But nothing of his condition is reflected in the overture (the only part of the original scheme he completed). It is vigorous, illustrative music, and in no sense depicts the composer ' longing for kindly Death and hating life as the text on which the music is based would have us suppose.

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.
