: The Music of Romance

The Station Orchestra, conducted by Warwick Braithwaite

The Composer said that in this Overture he intended to suggest the atmosphere of religions merry-making on Easter Sunday morning. The influence of old pagan customs was, in Russia, mingled with the more solemn Easter celebrations. Rimsky-Korsakov had in mind also reminiscences of ancient prophecy and of the gospel narrative, prefixing to his piece two Scriptural quotations. One is from Psalm lxviii, beginning 'Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered...' and the other, from the 16th chapter of Mark, describes Mary Magdalene and the others coming to the sepulchre of Jesus, finding the stone rolled away, and hearing the wonderful tidings from the angel: 'He is risen!'

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.
