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.
Relayed from the National Museum of Wales
National Orchestra of Wales

This short oratorio deals with the miraculous return of sight to the man who had been blind from birth. The Meditation, for orchestra, stands as a Prelude to it, and is sufficiently well described by its name.

On his first visit to this country, as a young man of twenty, Mendelssohn was particularly impressed by the rugged beauty of the Western Isles of Scotland. On his first sight of Fingal's Cave, to which he was rowed out in a boat, he jotted down the tune which afterwards became the main theme of this Overture. It is heard at the outset on the basses, and runs through a large part of the music.

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.
