: Orchestral Hour BBC MIIDLAND LIGHT ORCHESTRA

(Leader, Frank Thomas )
Conductor, Leo Wurmser
Vaughan Williams wrote his music for Job, a ' masque for dancing,' in 1930 and dedicated it to Sir Adrian Boult. The score, inspired by Blake's great ' Illustrations to the Book of Job,' paints an unforgettable musical picture of the main characters and events in the story: the quiet contentment of Job and his family, and the destruction of his wealth and his children by Satan; the hypocritical consolations of Job's comforters; Job cursing God. and Satan triumphantly seated on God's throne: Elihu's dance of youth and beauty. Satan's expulsion from Heaven, and Job's final reconciliation with God.

T. G. E. Powell
Lecturer in Prehistoric Archaeology of Western Europe in the University of Liverpool
Excavations were begun in 1952 and completed in 1953 at Barciodiad y Gawres a megalithic tomb in south-west Anglesey. In plan this tomb resembles one of the great Irish passage graves, and several of the walling stones were found to be covered with incised geometrical and schematic designs. With the engravings from Bryn Ce'lii Ddu, also in Anglesey, these stones constitute the oldest art found in Wales. In this programme the speakers discuss the connections and origins of this art in the tombs of Ireland, France, Iberia, and the West Mediterranean.

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.
