From Birmingham
The Birmingham Studio Orchestra, conducted by Frank Cantell
There are two monuments to Count Egmont, the patriot of the Netherlands : one is the statue of him that was erected at Brussels some sixty years ago (which many listeners will have seen) the other is Goethe's tragedy bearing his name, for the stage presentation of which Beethoven wrote music - an Overture and a good many incidental pieces, which all finely match the dramatic story. The Overture is full of the pride and heroism of Egmont.

: Popular Chamber Music

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STRING ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
WRITING to his friend and benefactor, Madame von Meek, in 1880, Tchaikovsky said that his Muse had been very benevolent, for he had written two long works very rapidly. One was the ' 1812 ' Overture, of which he said, 'It has no great artistic value ' ; the other was the Serenade in C (his Op. 48), which, he says, ' on the contrary, I wrote from an inward impulse ; I felt it.' It was one of the works he conducted in London in 1888, when paying his first visit to this country.
The Serenade contains four Movements-a piece in ' First Movement' form, with themes of an old-world cast; a Waltz ; an Elegy, and a. Finale based on folk-tunes, one a hauling song of the Volga Boatmen, and the other a street song. We are to hear the last two Movements.

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.
