PART I
Relayed from THE QUEEN'S HALL, LONDON

THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY
ORCHESTRA
(Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL )
Conducted by ERNEST ANSERMET
THE hero who first gave the Eroica ' Symphony its name, was, as everybody knows, Napoleon Bonaparte , and the idea of such a work is supposed to have been suggested to Beethoven by the Ambassador Bemadotte. It was completed in 1804, and a dedication to Napoleon stood on the title-page. The autograph copy in the Library at Vienna still bears the name of Bonaparte, but the published version is dedicated simply ' To the memory of a great man.' All the world knows how Beethoven made the change on hearing of Napoleon's adoption of the Imperial crown. It was a liberator of mankind that he had sought to honour, not one who was winning power and position for himself. Wagner, in one of his masterly essays, tells us that the main idea of its first movement is force, rising to titanic strength and even to the violence of a destroyer. In the second movement this force is tamed by deep grief, and in the third, chastened by its own deep sorrow, it appears as buoyant gaiety. The last movement, Wagner considers, shows to us the man harmoniously at one with himself.

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.
