: An Autumn Programme

S.B. from Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STATION ORCHESTRA: Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE Autumn depicted by MacDowell has neither the sense of sadness nor the richness of the 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' that we in this country know. The impression is rather that of the crisp, tingling freshness of the American 'fall' that stimulates and invigorates.
VERY soon after ho left the Royal Academy of Music (in 1887) Edward German began to make his mark, first with work for the theatre (his Richard III music, written within two years of that event, was a great success). Then came a Symphony, and after that some more Shakespeare music (for Henry VIII, of which everybody knows the famous Three Dances). Very soon he was busy almost every year with commissions either for incidental music to plays, or for works to be produced at Musical Festivals. His Symphonic Suite The Seasons, of which we are to hear the number appropriate to this time of the year (a Harvest Dance), was written, at the request of the authorities, for the Norwich Festival of 1899.

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.
