Symphony No. 1
WHEN a Festival of Sir Edward Elgar 's music was organized in 1904, a persistent rumour was abroad that it would include a Symphony which had not as yet made its appearance. The world of music, however, had to wait four years longer before the eagerly-expected work was heard. It is dedicated, with the kindliness with which Sir Edward often invests his dedications, ' To Hans Richter , true artist and true friend,' and it was Richter who gave it its first performance, with the Hallo Orchestra, in 1908. It begins with a slow introduction,leading to the great first Allegro ; the second movement is a Scherzo with Trio; the third a very big Adagio, whose first theme is made of the same notes as the beginning of the Scherzo in an entirely new rhythm. The last movement also has a slow introduction before the powerful Allegro which is its main part.

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

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.
