' In Autumn '
Grieg's overture ' In Autumn ' is a tone picture of autumn in Norway. A short introduction, with a wistful little tune shared by oboe and flute, leads to the principal quick section in the minor key, in which the first main theme is soon heard-a strongly rhythmic measure. A calmer section brings us to the second main tune, played by horns and clarinets-a more gracious and cheerful melody.
Tchaikovsky's Third Suite
Tchaikovsky began the writing of his third orchestral suite at the end of April, 1884. During this time he was keeping a diary in which he noted from day to day the development of his work, which appears to have cost him a considerable amount of trouble.
The Suite was completed at the beginning of July and first performed some time later at St. Petersburg under Hans von Biilow. The Theme and Variations form the last movement of the Suite.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
