: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of the Artists' General Benevolent Institution by Sir John Martin-Harvey , D.Litt., LL.D.
The Artists' General Benevolent Institution, which was established in 1814 and incorporated by Royal Charter in 1842, was formed for the purpose .of helping professional artists-painters, sculptors, engravers, and artists. It helps them over difficulties caused by temporary distress or unmerited neglect, as well as those due to illness, blindness, and old age. Relief is also given to their widows and orphans. The Institution is "principally dependent on voluntary subscriptions, and the war adds to the calls on it.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Sir John Martin-Harvey, [address removed]

: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Leader, Laurance Turner
Conductor, Gideon Fagan Haydn's Symphony No. 103, in E flat (The Drum Roll), is the eighth of the series of symphonies that Haydn wrote for Salomon in London. It shows the classical symphony brought to its highest state of organisation. Apart from added richness of detail and subject-matter, the orchestration is characterised by more freedom of the wind instruments and the lower strings. In the E flat Symphony, for instance, instead of the customary strings and four wind instruments there are in addition strings, two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, two horns, two trumpets, and drums. The Symphony derives its title from the fact that the first move. ment opens with a drum roll.

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.
