STUART ROBERTSON (Bass)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL)
Conducted by REGINALD STEWART
0NE summer, when Mendelssohn was twenty, he made a tour in Scotland. There, as he says in a letter home, the islands of the Hebrides affected him profoundly, and he records his impressions by jotting down the first twenty bars or so of what, a year later, was to become the overture now to be heard. As a seascape this tone picture is superb, and though it differs from Wagner's conception of the sea, as in, for example, the Flying Dutchman Overture, Wagner acknowledged its truth and beauty, and he often asked for it to be played to him on the piano. ' Mendelssohn,' he said on one occasion, ' was a landscape-painter of the first order, and the " Hebrides " Overture is his masterpiece. Wonderful imagination and delicate feeling are here presented with consummate art.'

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.
