(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Frank Bridge
'There is a Willow'
Frank Bridge's impression for small orchestra, ' There is a Willow', is based on the Queen's tale of Oohelia's death. Many listeners will remember the lines:-
There with fantastic garlands did she come.
Of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples. and when the willow broke, and she
... fell in the weeping brook, her clothes spread wide.
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up ;
What time she chanted snatches of old tunes until her heavy garments pull'd her down to death. But vividly as the few phrases can bring a picture of the tragedy before us-poignant and tender in its sorrow—Bridge's music is not to be taken as illustrating it line by line ; it is just a reflection of its.mood.
Dvorak's Fourth Symphony
When he was invited to conduct at a concert of the London Phil harmonic Society in 1890, Dvorak brought with him the score and parts of a new symphony, which was exceedingly well received. This was the Fourth Symphony (Op. 88, in G), one of his most delightful works, brim-full of lovely melody and scored with. those transparent orchestral colours that infallibly proclaim the hand of Dvorak.
No other composer has ever come so near to Schubert's ' linked sweetness long drawn out ', and this symphony is one of the most Schubertian of all his works.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
