: An Orchestral Concert

(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO
AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA
(Leader, FRANK CANTELL)
Conducted by JOSEPH Lewis
Dr. THOMAS WOOD has a very warm corner in his heart for the sea and sailors, and many of his best known pieces have a strongly salt 'flavour. Of this Overture ho has said himself that it. 'deals with seamen rather than the sea, and is in some measure a tribute to one particular ship's company, of happy memory. It owes something to their courage, good humour and love of sentiment.' Several of the best known sea soncp and shanties are used as the themes of the piece, the halliards shanty, ' Blow the man down,' played by the horns as the second principal theme, another shanty, ' Haul away...Joe,' two old sea songs, ' Tho Maid of Amsterdam ' and ' 'Admiral Benbow,' and lastly the favourite ' Shenandoah.* These are set forth with real vigour and energy, but towards the end of the piece there is a thought of mourning, in memory of the seamen who gave their lives in the Great War.

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
