TWO of Mendelssohn's orchestral works, Fingal's Cave and the Scots Symphony, owed their inspiration to the visit which he paid to Scotland in 1829. The melody which forms the chief tune of the Overture Fingal's Cave, sometimes called ' The Hebrides,' was written down immediately after a visit to Staffa and Iona, and sent home in one of his delightful letters, describing the visit with all his own buoyant enthusiasm.
The Overture begins with lower strings and bassoons, presenting a theme which depicts the long, rolling Atlantic breakers, and later it is the same instruments which give us the second chief tune. The Overture is built up on these singly and together ; a very beautiful instance of their use in combination is heard near the end, where flute and horns join to play them very softly.

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
