This evening's concert from the Albert Hall celebrates the occasion of Sir Henry Wood 's fifty years of conducting. Sir Henry Wood 's first professional engagement as a conductor began on January 1, 1888, when he conducted the All-Saints Choral and Orchestral Society at Clapton. Since that time Sir Henry Wood has become one of the most distinguished conductors in the world, but the most important part of his work has undoubtedly been his forty-four years association with the Queen's Hall Promenade Concerts.
This evening the programme includes the first performance of a ' Serenade to Music ' which Vaughan Williams has written specially for the occasion. It will be sung by sixteen leading British singers, all of whom have worked with Sir Henry Wood for many years both in London and at various famous festivals in the provinces. The entire proceeds of the concert, together with donations, will be devoted to the Henry Wood Jubilee Fund for the endowment of beds in London hospitals for the benefit of orchestral musicians.

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.
