: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA (50 Performers)
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY and SUSAN SPAIN-DUNK
Relayed from the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth (Soloist, SAMUEL KUTCHER )
THIS work has as poetic basis Tennyson's conception of Elaine, the holy maid of Astolat' in Lancelot and Elaine (Idylls of the King).
It opens with a short Introduction for Woodwind, in which hints of the coming First Main Tune are heard. This, a long and impassioned melody, is heard from First Violins. On its first phrase much of the working out of the work is based. Prefacing the next section is an accompaniment-motif for Woodwind, which is important, for, together with the first phrase of the opening theme, it forms the material of the development. As soon as we have heard the Second Main Time (on Violas), with this motif persistently accompanying it, the ideas are worked out, and then, in the Coda, the two main themes appear in combination. The First Main Tune's opening notes are used as a repeated bass, with. the effect of a funeral knell, reminding us of the last sad journey of the Maid.

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.
