THE first of the four Ballads that make up
Brahms' Op. 10 is described as .' After the Scottish ballad Edward '-the words of which the composer later set as one of his Ballads and Romances (Op. 75). This ancient tale, the spirit of which is caught in the piece we are to hear, is found in Percy's Reliques. It is » dialogue between a mother and her son. He comes in with reddened sword, and she anxiously . asks what is the meaning of it. He says first that he has killed his steed. Pressed, he declares that he has killed his father. In the mother's heart fear and horror grow. He says ho will' ' fare over the sea,' leaving his wife and children for ever. ' And what will ye leave to your ain mither, dear ? ' she tremblingly asks. In anger and despair, the son cries out,' The ourso of hell frao me shall ye bear ! '—for ' sic counsels ye gave to me.'

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.
