: A Symphony Concert

Some of the loveliest music of this century was left us by George Butterworth, who (like many young English composers) was killed in action in France, in August, 1916. His music tells plainly that he had deep within him the rapture and tranquillity of the English country-side.
Unfortunately, the music he left us is as slight in bulk as it is choice. Two song-cycles and this orchestral Rhapsody are founded on A.E. Housman's poem-cycle, A Shropshire Lad. The song-cycles are, of course, settings of certain of the poems, while the Rhapsody is 'a sort of epilogue, to the song-cycles' - a reverie, perhaps, on the whole of 'A Shropshire Lad.'

: Orchestra

Sibelius' symphonies are not very often played here, and the opportunity of hearing one is very welcome. This Fifth Symphony was first performed in 1915, at a concert given at Helsingfors to celebrate the composer's fiftieth birthday.
The Fifth Symphony has four Movements, but the first two are linked together, the opening Movement being in rather slow time, the Second moving at a brisk pace.
In the FIRST MOVEMENT several brief ideas play their part in the scheme.
The quick SECOND MOVEMENT comes unexpectedly, without a break. It begins with a theme played high up in thirds, by Woodwind, the Strings jumping about below. Soon the Trumpet has a brisk tune, accompanied by the kettledrum. This is taken up and treated by other instruments. The Movement ends with a very lively climax. Now there is a break before the THIRD MOVEMENT. This takes a little rhythmic idea of five notes and works it up by melodic variation and quiet discussion. In the middle the Brass has new matter, and then the original rhythmic basis is re-established, and all ends calmly.
The LAST MOVEMENT has for its first idea a Viola tune which is heard against a background of trembling string tone. The Horns and Strings have the loud, swinging second tune. This, and other matter, is fully dealt with, and there is a great climax.

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.
