(Conductor, Frederick Haggis )
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
From the Royal Albert Hall, London
' Symphony with final chorus on Schiller's Ode to Joy ' is the full title of Beethoven's Ninth. The first movement begins mysteriously; the music seems to be conjured up out of the void, and when the chief theme makes its appearance its aspect is stem and uncompromising. There are wonderfully expressive passages, but the movement as a whole has a gaunt, sombre character. Vigorous and explosive is the Scherzo that follows, in which the drums play an important part. After it the Adagio falls on the ear like a benediction; its beauty and tenderness are not of this world. When it has died away there is a furious outburst on the part of the wind instruments and drums. The cellos and basses break in with an appeal, only to be met by another outburst. Leading ideas from the previous movements are then recalled, but the cellos and basses intervene again, and there steals in a fragment of the melody to which Schiller's Ode is set. This receives a welcome from the rest of the orchestra, and the tune is heard in full. But the joyful music is not allowed to continue for long; the Spirit that denies * vehemently makes its presence felt, for the last time. The bass soloist protests, singing ' Oh, friends, not these sounds; let us sing something more pleasant and joyful ': whereupon the Ode begins in earnest. Its exultant strains express a kind of divine intoxication; a feeling that comes now and again to most people (would that it came more often 1) that in spite of differences of class, race, and creed, all mankind are brothers plighted,' and over them * dwells a loving Father.'

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.
