: Elgar

by JERROLD NORTHROP MOORE
The last of three programmes
A portrait in words and music of the great English composer who died 50 years ago with Julian Glover as Edward Elgar
Narrator John Rowe
The Great War shattered Elgar's spirit and when
Lady Elgar died in 1920 he was inconsolable. The last years were desolate indeed. The creative spark failed to ignite; works were begun which would never be completed, including a new symphony commissioned by the BBC. But although his music was now out of fashion there were those who recognised its true worth, notably Bernard Shaw. With CAROLE BOYD , NIGEL GRAHAM , JOHN LTVESEY ,
ALLAN MCCLELLAND , KATHERINE PARR and PETER WICKHAM

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.
