Haydn wrote his twenty-fifih symphony about 1765, when he was in his early thirties, a few years after he had entered the service of Prince Esterhazy; it is in four movements.
Vaughan Williams's Five Variants * are scored for string orchestra with harp. The composer's own note on the work reads as follows: ' The tune generally known as * " Dives and Lazarus " (though it is often sung also to other words) is very widespread among traditional singers; we know it, therefore, in many varying forms. These variants are an attempt to show these different aspects of the same tune, though none of them actually embodies any particular version of the melody.'
The Suite Mignonne of Sibelius, which dates from 1921, is scored for two flutes and strings and is in three movements: Patte: scene, Polka, and Epilogue.
The two Dances for harp and strings by Debussy were writrten in 1904 at the request of the firm of Pleyei for use in competitions in harp- playing at the Brussels Conservatoire.

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.
