: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conducted by CHARLES LEGGETT
PATRICIA ROSSBOROUGH (Pianoforte)
This tone-poem of the sea as young Mendelssohn saw it on his visit to Scotland is among the most beautiful pieces- of music Mendelssohn—or, for that matter, the greater number of his contemporaries—ever wrote. The felicity of the musical phrases echoing the play of the waves on a rock-bound coast, the melodies seeming to reflect sunlight, and the happiness implicit in the music make a picture of the Hebridean Isles which has held the attention of listeners for over a century. This overture and the Scots Symphony were fruits of a tour Mendelssohn made in Scotland while on a visit to London. He recorded his impressions at the time, but developed them later while travelling in Italy. That may partly account for the absence of any Atlantic turbulence in the picture.

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.
