: SYMPHONY CONCERT

BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard)
Conducted by Sir John Barbirolli
In 1902, at the height of his powers, Delius wrote a one-act opera, to a French libretto, for a competition; but the work was neither performed nor published. Thirty years later Delius' thoughts turned again to the opera; and though he was blind and paralysed, with the help of Eric Fenby (to whom Delius dictated his last works) he adapted parts of it to words by Whitman beginning: ' Once I passed through a populous city.' The work that resulted was an extended and impassioned love duet; it was given the title of Idyll and performed for the first time at a Promenade Concert in 1933. Berlioz said that in his ' symphony in four movements with viola solo he had woven round the solo part a series of scenes drawn from his memories of wanderings in the Abruzzi. The association with Childe Harold's Pilgrimage arose because there seemed to be about the whole symphony ' a poetic melancholy worthy of Byron's hero.' The titles of the movements are: Harold in the Mountains-Scenes of melancholy, happiness, and joy; March of the Pilgrims singing the evening prayer; Serenade of an Abruzzi mountain-dweller to his mistress; Orgy of brigands -Reminiscences of previous scenes.

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.
