Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth

THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (50 Performers)
Conducted by Sir Dan Godfrey
THE air on which these Variations are mode is a very simple Tune, ending in a little Wood-wind refrain, which is repeated after each of the Variations - seven in number.
First Symphony, in C Minor .......... Brahms
The Symphony in C Minor follows the usual 'classical' forms, and is in four Movements -
The First is very weighty and unusually serious, even for Brahms. The vein of seriousness affects also the Second Movement, a gently-flowing piece, partly song-like, partly rhapsodic. Then comes a more light-spirited Movement, of a more seizable rhythm, but one that is far from introducing the spirit of gaiety that we often find in one of the centrepieces of a Symphony.
The last Movement opens with a short, solemn introduction that keeps the violins in soaring flight for a few bars. Then, after a change from the prevailing minor to a major key and a short pause, the urgent Finale (still in the major) starts on its long, exulting course.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
