: Reid Orchestral Concert

The Reid Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, W. Watt Jupp)
Conductor, Professor D.F. Tovey
Edinburgh University owes its Chair of Music to a distinguished soldier, who was himself a composer and a keen amateur of music. One of the Perthshire Robertsons, he adopted the name Reid in later life, and it was as a Robertson that he first saw service in the '45. He was afterwards in the 42nd Highlanders (The Black Watch), and served with distinction in many campaigns as far afield as Martinique, Havana, and North America, as well as in Flanders. He left a considerable fortune, bequeathing it to his alma mater, to found a professorship of music, with the proviso that every year after his appointment the said should 'cause a concert of music to be performed on the 13th February, being my birthday.' He laid it down also that in each of these concerts some of his own compositions were to be played 'by a select band.' The March by General Reid, which is usually the piece chosen to comply with his own wish, is apt to sound naive and simple alongside of the music with which it finds itself in company, but its performance is a pious rite of gratitude to one whose feats of arms would long ago have been forgotten had it not been that he sincerely loved music and the city where he was a student.
The orchestra which bears his name, founded and conducted by Professor Tovey, has for several years past taken an important place in the music of Scotland, as listeners in England also have had several chances of hearing for themselves.

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.
