Beethoven's Overture and incidental music to Goethe's Egmont ' were completed in 1810, and therefore represent the composer at the height of his powers. As a piece of dramatic writing in terms of ' pure ' music, and for fertility of invention and imaginative treatment, this overture has few, if any, equals outside perhaps one or two other similar works by Peethoven himself.
Indeed, Beethoven's music perfectly expresses Motley's description of Egmont in his ' Rise of the Dutch Republic ' : ' terrible and sudden in wrath-a splendid soldier, whose evil star destined him to tread, as a politician, a dark and dangerous path, in which not even genius, caution, and integrity could ensure success, but in which rashness, alternating with hesitation, could not fail to bring ruin'. The music also depicts the final tragedy of Egmont when he meets death on the scaffold.

'Plating Racehorses'
FRANK ROBINSON
Every racehorse, visiting a racecourse for purposes of business, must have his shoes changed twice a day. He comes and goes in walking boots, so to speak, and races in dancing shoes.
Of the great art of plating racehorses
Frank Robinson is to speak this evening. And assuredly nobody knows more about it, for he has plated Derby winners and Grand National winners year after year. He travels to the Continent to plate the horses owned by the Aga Khan.
Frank Robinson , with his swarthy figure and rosy face, is a well-known figure on every racecourse in the country. He was apprenticed to plating when he was thirteen ; the first horse he had to shoe chased him round the stable; he shoed Quantock who could win sprints when he liked and yet could be so wicked that he was warned off the turf. He shoed Craganour who won the Derby on the racecourse and lost it in the objection room, and Aboyeur who came in second, but got the race.
He has passed on to his assistants
Dick and Bill his artistry at shoeing the horse that cuts its legs or has bad feet. But perhaps one of the greatest things he has done for racing was to invent a racing plate so light and durable that it is used all over the world. In 1924 he had the honour to be made Shoeing Smith and Plater to H.M. the King.

Rimsky-Korsakov's Piano Concerto was completed early in January, 1883, and therefore the first important work to follow the opera Snow Maiden. ('Scheherazade' and the 'Spanish Capriccio' came four or five years later.) The whole Concerto is based on a single theme - a Russian folk-song. As the composer himself has pointed out, 'the Concerto is in every respect modelled on the concertos of Liszt'. That is to say, the movements are short and run into each other without a break, each being based on a fresh metamorphosis of the folk-song theme.
Sibelius's King Christian Suite forms the incidental music to Aldolf Paul's tragedy of King Christian II, the sixteenth-century ruler of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, against whose treachery and tyranny Gustavus Vasa arose. Christian was driven from his kingdom, and in spite of an attempt to regain his power, he ended his days in prison, dying in 1559.

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.
