WOODHOUSE)
Conducted by Sir HENRY WOOD
Schubert composed eleven numbers as incidental music to a fantastic play called Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus. The play, which was a very bad one, scarcely survived the first performance, but the musical numbers of the ballet and the entr'acte are very nearly the most popular of all Schubert's orchestral pieces. This music, by the way, was mislaid for forty years after Schubert's death, and very nearly lost altogther. It was discovered quite by accident in a disused cupboard by two Englishmen—Sir George Grove and Sir Arthur Sullivan.
DOROTHY SILK and Orchestra
The Blessed Virgin's Expostulation Purcell
Grieg wrote this pianoforte concerto in the first year of his marriage, and it speaks eloquently of his happiness. He played the solo part himself on his first appearance in London in 1888 at a concert of the Hoyal Philharmonic Society.

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.
