Joseph Lewis is conducting four concerts this week, of which this is the first. For fifteen years Lewis was with the BBC, which he left in 1938, first as Musical Director of the Birmingham station and then, as a staff conductor. On leaving the BBC he formed his own orchestra which broadcast many times up to the outbreak of war.
For a period at the beginning of the war he was a guest conductor of the BBC Northern •Orchestra, so he will be paying a return visit this week.

: HOLIDAYS-AT-HOME CONCERT

BBC Scottish Orchestra : conductor, Ian Whyte. Norman Allin (bass)
The Symphony No. 2 in D, composed in 1902, shows Sibelius striking out on new lines. Although this symphony is cast in the usual four movements, each movement, particularly the first, is designed for the most part on new principles .of musical form. Instead of the announcement of two or three self-contained melodies that are developed and then restated, Sibelius begins with melodic fragments and then proceeds to combine them into a melodic whole in the course of the movement. The procedure is really the reverse of the classical and romantic methods of symphonic construction

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.

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