AN ORCHESTRAL 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.
by the HALLÉ ORCHESTRA,
Conducted by Sir HAMILTON HARTY Relayed from the Free Trade Hall
Relayed to London and Daventry
ONLY in middle age did Brahms begin to write
Symphonies. This is a work of his full maturity, written when he was fifty. Its first performance was given in Vienna, under Richter (afterwards so well known in this country), and as each Movement ended, there arose excited applause and also hissing. Very soon the work settled down as a solid success, and for forty years it has been one of the unfailing delights of the concert room-a work of true power, depth, and sweetness, the product of a noble mind.
There are four Movements-a quick, big-spirited one, a gentle song-like one, a romantically melancholy one, and another quick and vigorous one.

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.
