: A Symphony Concert

Relayed from the New Pavilion, Bournemouth
No. XXVIII of the Thirty-fourth Winter Series
The Bournemouth Municipal Augmented Orchestra
(First Performance)
Conducted by The Composer
Mr. King-Hall has furnished a brief note on his work: This Overture was composed as a tribute to the immortal genius of Schubert, and that it might be undyingly associated with his name, the first four bars of his "Unfinished" Symphony were taken and reconstructed to form part of the first subject of the Overture, the time, tempo, and mode being altered. A short bridge passage, a plaintive but insistent call from the past, voiced by the clarinet, introduces the second subject, given out on the French Horn - a love song, sung in the shades of peace - of which much is made in the development section. After the recapitulation, the Overture is brought to a close by a short but brilliant coda embodying the reconstructed bars, thus ending with the same motif as it began.'
(First Performance at these Concerts)
Conducted by The Composer
The Skye Symphony was composed in the autumn of 1927 and gained a Carnegie Award in the following year. The composer tells us that it is rhapsodical in character, but has yet classic principles. There is one principal motive which pervades the whole work; heard in different ways and moods, its phrases have a special significance. It is the impression of the Island in general that it seeks to express rather than any definite details.

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.
