: BEETHOVEN'S

Fifth Symphony played by" the BBC Symphony Orchestra: conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
I suppose that one of the greatest and certainly the most popular and universal symphonies of all time is Beethoven's No. 5 in C minor. During this war the opening rat-a-tat-tat motive, upon which the. first movement is largely built, has been associated with Victory because the rat-a-tat-tat in Morse stands for 'V,' a cryptic symbol used for Victory. Some misguided people, I am afraid, went so far as to entitle Beethoven's C minor Symphony the ' V Symphony.'
The first movement has nothing to do with Victory; it is usually associated with the ominous demands of Fate. But the finale is a song of joyful triumph. Indeed. Grove said that after the suffering ' suddenly bursts the new world, radiant with the eternal sunshine, and welcomed by the jubilant sound of those aeonian strains, when all the sons of God shouted for joy.'—Ralph Hill

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.
