Relayed from the Town Hall, Birmingham rE five Drum notes which open the First
THE Movement form a motif, of which, as the music unfolds itself, considerable use is made. The Woodwind has both first and second main tunes; while the second is being given out (it begins with a lofty, rising phrase) the Strings reiterate the opening Drum rhythm. Before the Soloist enters and the game is fully afoot, yet a third tune, in Strings and Woodwind, is heard-a loud one, rising boldly up the scale.
The Second Movement is a lovely example of Variation form, in which a tender, noble melody is heard in different forms, as if the Solo Violin were meditating upon and lovingly caressing it. This Movement goes directly, without a break, into the Finale, a gay Rondo.
THE Symphony in C
Minor 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.
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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
