Cricket at Lord's by Patrick O'Donovan a correspondent of The Observer

: SYMPHONY CONCERT

BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Beethoven's Second Symphony is an altogether bigger, more splendid work than the Symphony in C that preceded it. Both the introduction and the slow movement are in tact more spacious and elaborate than those of any earlier symphony. In the Scherzo a brief phrase is tossed from one instrument to another in the happiest fashion; in the finale an abrupt and mischievous humour finds unforgettable expression. Yet the work, with its generally rather forma) cut, clearly looks to Haydn and Mozart as its progenitors.

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.
