This was the work with which Elgar made his first appearance at one of the great English Festivals-at Worcester, in 1890. It thus did a good deal to spread his fame, and was probably the first of his larger works to arouse anything at all like the interest which was even then his due. In front of the score stands a quotation from Keats : ' ... when Chivalry lifted up her lance on high ' ; and Ernest Newman tells us that the Overture took shape in its composer's mind from that passage in Walter Scott 's ' Old Mortality where Claverhouse speaks to Morton of his enthusiasm for the Froissart ' Chronicles '. The music is indeed eloquent of Eigar's idealised view of the old-world chivalry which Froissart presents to us with so much romance.

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.
