Rootham Centenary Concert

Synopsis

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.
Between 1901 and 1938 Cyril Rootham was an inspiring leader of music at Cambridge: as conductor of many memorable performances, as organist and musical director at St John's College, and as a teacher, whose pupils included Arthur Bliss , he exerted a deep and lasting influence. These achievements have unduly obscured his distinction as a composer. His output includes two remarkable symphonies, an opera, chamber music, some fine songs, and many beautiful choral works, chief of which is the notable setting of Milton's Nativity Ode.

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.
