: THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM POLICE BAND

(From Birmingham) .
Conducted by Richard WASSELL
ELGAR'S Op. 27 is a Suite for Choir and Orchestra, called ' From the . Bavarian Highlands,' an echo of the composer's travels in that kindly part of the world. Three numbers of the Suite are for orchestra alone, and these are often played separately. The first is a light-hearted dance, in which the tune enters boldly at the third bar. Once or twice its course is interrupted by a still more animated movement, and there is a more suave melody sometimes heard alono and sometimes along with the merry tune of the opening.
The second dance, called ' In Hammersbach,' opens with three introductory bars, and then the first violins play the leading tune. Here, too, there is another, more smoothly- flowing, melody heard along with the first, and a quieter section in the middle of the pieco. HELENA MILLAIS

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.
