: Music of the Masters BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Vaughan Williams ' Symphony in D, dedicated to Sibelius, is scored for a classical orchestra, with nearly all double-wind. The writing is flowing and smooth and the colouring very delicate. From the point of view of form the first movement is perhaps the finest, but the most expressive is the lovely ' Romanza.' The finale is a passacaglia, contemplative in mood and moderate in tempo. The work is rounded off with a lovely epilogue.

: FOCUS ON TELEPATHY

Is telepathy a fact or a legend? Can people really read each other's thoughts when separated by distance? If so, how general Is this gift? Can it be demonstrated at will, or only by chance? Has telepathy been investigated by scientific means and, if so, with what result? Tonight's programme explores a fascinating subject in which most are interested but about which many are vague

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.
