THERE are two monuments to Count Egmont, the patriot of the Netherlands ; one is the statue of him that was erected at Brussels some sixty years ago (which many listeners will have seen); the other is Goethe's tragedy bearing his name, for the stage presentation of which Beethoven wrote music-an Overture and a good many incidental pieces, which all finely match the dramatic story. The Overture is full of the pride and heroism of Egmont.

BY now everyone is well acquainted with the peculiar charm of A. J. Alan 's broadcasting manner, and nothing that can be said about him can add to the pleasure with which his admirers will learn that he is to broadcast again tonight.
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.
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.
