: CHAMBER MUSIC

The Macgibbon String Quartet:
Margot Macgibbon (violin)
Jessie Stewart (violin) Olive Davidson (viola)
Peers Coetmore (violoncello) Dittersdorf was one of Haydn's most distinguished contemporaries: he was an eminent violinist and composer of chamber music and opera, and the friend of both Gluck and Haydn. With the latter he was on very intimate terms, for, as Dittersdorf tells us in his memoirs, ' whenever we heard a new piece, we went through it carefully together, doing justice to all that was good and criticising what was bad in it'.
It is interesting to note that
Stephen Storace , the English opera composer, once gave a musical evening while on a visit to Vienna, and one of the chief items was a performance of a quartet of strings which consisted of Haydn (first violin), Dittersdorf , Mozart (viola) and Wanhal (cello).

: FROM THE PROMENADE CONCERT

at Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs, ChappellandCo. Ltd.)
The BBC
Symphony Orchestra
(ninety players)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
' Heroic Symphony, composed to celebrate the memory of a great man, dedicated to His Most Serene Highness the Prince of Lobkowitz by Ludwig van Beethoven (Op. 55, No. 3) '. So runs the Italian title of Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, in E flat. The ' great man ' was Napoleon, to whom the work was originally dedicated, for in 1803 Napoleon was known only as an altruist and great leader: the saviour of his country and the restorer of order and prosperity. But later, when Beethoven learned that Napoleon was really a tyrant and self seeker, he tore up the cover with its dedication and substituted a fresh one to Prince Lobkowitz. Nevertheless, whatever dramatic or psychological ideas were behind the conception of this symphony, from a purely musical point of view it remains one of the masterpieces of symphonic music.

: ' ARCHAEOLOGY '

J. Foster Forbes
In this series of talks J. Foster Forbes hopes to shatter the illusion that our far-off ancestors were mere savages. For some years he has made an exhaustive study of what is known of the earliest inhabitants of the British Isles, from the New Stone Age Man of 2500 B.C. or thereabouts up to historical times, with the object of constructing a coherent account intelligible even to those who know little about archaeology or anthropology.

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.

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.
