Part I
BACH'S well-known Concerto in D Minor is straightforward music, full of spirited tunes and swinging rhythm. It consists of three Movements.
The FIRST is a lively, vigorous piece with hardly a pause from start to finish.
The SECOND is slow and meditative.
The THIRD is sometimes emphatic, sometimes irresponsible, and always very gay.
TREACHERY, love and madness have brought Tristan to his death (in the final scene of Wagner's great love-drama, Tristan and Isolde).
Kneeling beside his body, Isolde takes her farewell of the world in this rich and wonderful song of ecstasy in death. It is known, in German, as the ' Liebcstod ' or ' Love-Death.'
BANTOCK'S Tone Poem was first brought out, under the title of Dante, in 1901. Ten years later it was revised, and its poetical significance somewhat altered. The composer's friend and confidant, Orsmond Anderton , describes it as ' a psychological study dealing with the influence of an uplifting ideal in the life of a man.'
First we have a portrait of Dante, sorrowful and reserved. The strife of his time, between Guelphs and Ghibellines, and Dante's portion in it, is suggested by a stormy section.
Then he meets Beatrice (Violin cadenzas, and Harp, with the theme of Beatrice on the Clarinet). Dante's blest vision following, brings in this theme, and then, as she departs, his impassioned desire bursts out.
The last section but one shows us Dante's exile, in bitter loneliness. Last of all, the themes of both Dante and Beatrice are heard together, suggesting the reunion of the two.

: SYMPHONY CONCERT

Part II
THIS Fifth Symphony of Tchaikovsky, and its younger and still more emotional brother, the ' Pathetic,' appear to be still without rivals in popularity among the Symphonies written since Beethoven. It is too well known to need close description. Those to whom it is not yet familiar should first know that there is a 'Motto' theme that binds the four move ments together. It is the chief subject of the sombre Introduction that leads to the swingmg FIRST MOVEMENT; it is declaimed noisily and abruptly at the climax of the romantic SECOND MOVEMENT; near the end of the Waltz which forms the THIRD MOVEMENT it enters, low down, with a suggestion of mockery, and as the spirited FOURTH MOVEMENT works to a climax it is thundered out triumphantly in the major key.








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.
