: Mahler's Third Symphony

direct from the Royal Festival Hall. London Alfreda Hodgson ( contralto
Southend Boys' Choir director MICHAEL CRABB Philharmonia Chorus chorus-master
JOHN MCCARTHY Philharmonia Orchestra led by CHRISTOPHER WARREN-GREEN conducted by Bernard Haitink
' It may be doubted whether a symphony can embrace the whole of creation, but Mahler's Third comes near to realising this ambitious conception. This is why it lasts more than 90 minutes and is a concert in itself. It is Mahler's most comprehensive work, since it stemmed from all his three main sources of inspiration - Nature, Man and God.'
(DERYCK COOKE )

A story for two voices by DAVID MERCER with Michael Hordern and Kate Binehy
' I have never been guilty of blindness to my tinorthodoxies as a clergyman even if I have been cynical of my responsibilities. I have become an ecclesiastical tosspot and this diary a shameful document - the " liber pornographicorum " of a cleric so reduced and enfeebled by lust as to welcome the thought of his possible demise at the climax of the sexual act.'

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.
