During this year's season of Promenade Concerts, all Beethoven's symphonies are being performed in numerical order, and all are being. broadcast in the Home Service, with the exception of No. 2, which will be taken by the Third Programme. In order that the sequence shall not be broken in the Home Service, however, the Second Symphony will be given a studio performance in its correct position, on Sunday, August 3.
Beethoven completed his first symphony in 1800 in Vienna, where he had come eight years earlier, a young man of twenty-two, to study with Haydn. He was iriready well known as a pianist and had played his first piano concerto in public, but he had h therto written no purely orchestral work of any importance. The Symphony was givert at a public concert, together with the first or second piano concerto and the Septet for wind and strings, on April 2, 1800. Deryck Cooke

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.
