' Making the most of ourselves.' Some people over thirty are heard discussing a young worker's question : ' What's the point of improving your mind and all that ? '

: THE HALLE ORCHESTRA

(leader, Laurance Turner ) : conductor, Malcolm Sargent. Second broadcast from the series organised by the Halle Society in collaboration with the BBC
From the Opera House, Manchester
Although there is little doubt that Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in E minor was written with some kind of a programme at the back of the composer's mind, he has given no indication as to what it might be. Certainly we know that at that time he was very pessimistic over his art, and in a letter to his great friend
Nadejda von Meek he said he was anxious to prove not only to the outside world but to himself that he was not finished as a composer, and he mentioned that he was at work on a new symphony. This new symphony proved to be the No. S in E minor.
Except for the last movement the greater part of the symphony is tragic in character, and, like the Fourth Symphony, the work is dominated throughout by a motto theme : a gloomy melody that is heard at the outset on the clarinet over an accompaniment for strings and bassoon. Curiously, the theme itself is a quotation from the aria ' Do not turn to sorrow the hour of our reunion ' in the first act of Glinka's opera A Life for the Tsar.

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.

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.
