: An Orchestral Concert

The BBC Scottish Orchestra (Augmented)
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conducted by Ian Whyte
As a composer, Sir John Blackwood McEwen has a long list of big works to his credit, including numerous chamber works and several symphonies. His Symphony in C sharp minor, known as 'Solway', was first performed at Bournemouth in 1922. Each of the four movements has a title and is headed with lines of verse that indicate the mood of the music. The first movement, 'Spring Tide':
Long golden sands edged with a silver streak,
The impetuous surge that races to the shore,
The full and steady motion of the flood -
When Sun and Moon combine to tug the tide.
The second movement, 'Moonlight': 'The tired ocean crawls along the beach, sobbing a wordless sorrow to the moon'. The third movement, 'The Sou'west Wind': ' Sun, wind and cloud shall fail not from the face of it, Stinging, ringing, spindrift, nor the fulmar flying free'.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
