PROMENADE 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.
(Continued) mHE First Dance Rhapsody was brought out at the Hereford Festival of 1909. It is written for a large Orchestra, including the rarely heard Heckelphone (an improved Bass Obce).
At the outset a short Introduction brings forth some of the tunes to be worked upon. Two of these nppeear successively on Oboe and Flute. Another motif of which use is made is the little dance played by the Horns.
In the next section the time quickens considerably, and a new tune is given out, low down. Violins, in octaves, have another. The treatment of these is free, and charmingly coloured.
After a climax, a slow section ensues, in which a Solo Violin has a beautiful version of the first
Tune, accompanied only by Strings.
The last clear division is that in which the very lively pace is resumed. The ending is loud and most energetic.

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.
