' To keep vigil with our men '

: BBC ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
Lennox Berkeley 's ' Divertimento in B flat' was one of several works commissioned bv the BBC in '1942 for chamber orchestra. It is scored for double woodwind, two horns, two trumpets, one trombone, timpani, and strings. There are four movements: the first, allegro moderato, is a kind of prelude and is followed by the slow movement which bears the subr title Nocturne. The third movement is a Scherzo written to the classical pattern with a Trio and a repeat of the Scherzo in slightly modified form. The last movement is a Rondo. The work is on the whole light in spirit and clear in texture, its object being, as suggested by the title, to entertain.

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.
