The Symphony Orchestra, conducted by'Pierre Monteux : Overture,
Les Trovens Carthage (The Trojans at Carthage) (Berlioz)
The Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Pierre Monteux : Symphonie Fantastique (Berlioz) - I.
Reveries: Passions ; 2. Un Bal (A Ball) ;
3 Scenes aux Champs (Scenes in the Fields) ; 4. Marche au Supplice
(March to the Scaffold) ; 5. Songe d'une nuit de Sabbat (Dream of a Witches' Sabbath)
The Symphonie Fantastique is descriptive of the dreams of an artist who has tried to poison himself with opium. The work is built on a ' motto ' theme, an idée fixe, which pursues the dreamer everywhere. The first movement describes all the bewildering tumult of heart of one who has fallen violently in love. The second is a ball where he meets his beloved, and the third describes a summer evening in the country. In the fourth he dreams that he had murdered his beloved, and is marched to the scaffold, and the fifth is a very orgy of terror.

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.
