'The Second Spring'
A Sermon preached on July 13, 1852, in St. Mary's Oscott, in the First Provincial Synod of Westerminster, by John Henry , later Cardinal Newman
IN the course of time, centuries, like individuals, get labels attached to them. Thus the nineteenth century, superficially considered, has fallen into the category of an industrial age, distinguished from the growth of a scepticism originating in the triumphs of scientific speculation. The numerous sources of spiritual renaissance which irrigated this desert are either neglected or studied without much reference to the' climate of opinion' which surrounded them.
One of the most isolated, but one of the most vigorous, of these springs, was the Oxford Movement. And the most striking individual amongst its leaders, by virtue of the vigour of his thought and the quality of its expression, was John Henry , later Cardinal Newman.
As a man, Newman was chiefly distinguished for his personality, which gave unity to his religions development and all its forms of expression. In his lifetime he exercised an attraction which continues to emanate from his writings. As a preacher, he was distinguished for the extraordinary range of his eloquence, which combines irony and tenderness with sympathetic intuition Ho excels in his ability to present clearly and nobly the conflicts of sensibility. The sermon called ' The Second Spring' fully illustrates these qualities. It was preached at Oscott, while he was still suffering under the tribulations due to the famous Achilli libel trial.

Conducted by GODFREY BROWN
Overture, ' Roman Carnival' .....Berlioz Rhapsody, ' A Shropshire Lad'.. Butterworth
THE Overture is made up of themes taken from Berlioz' opera Benvenuto Cellini , an opera which was dogged by dismal failure wherever it was produced. The Overture, on the other hand, has always been successful. It begins with the whirlwind Allegro to which Berlioz refers, and then there is a melody which, in the opera, Benvenuto sings to his beloved Teresa; here it is played first by English horn and then repeated by the strings. It makes way for another bustling Allegro, and towards the end the Saltarello from the opening returns.

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.
