: BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Guy Warrack
Symphony No. 5, in E flat Schubert Norwegian artists' carnival Svendsen In its original form the Overture on Russian Themes, written in 1866. was closely modelled on Balakirev's folk-song overtures: that in B minor and that now known as ' Russia '. The melody of the introduction and conclusion is that introduced by Beethoven in the second ' Razumovsky' Quartet and later used by Mussorgsky in Boris. Of the two allegro themes, one has also become familiar through its appearance in Tchaikovsky's ' 1812' Overture.
Korsakov's Overture was first performed on December 23, 1866. But thirteen years later the composer revised and re-orchestrated it, giving it the form in which listeners will hear it this morning.

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.
