This Symphony is an impressionistic record in music of the familiar sights, sounds, and atmosphere of the City of London as experienced by one of her citizens. The listener, through a morning haze over the City, hears the chimes of Westminster, and wakes with the City itself to a day of work, energy, and the full life of its citizens. The second movement illustrates a quieter phase; the Scherzo is an easily recognised picture of London at night; while in the fourth movement the majesty of London casts its spell upon the music.
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.
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.
