THE B B C THEATRE ORCHESTRA
Conducted by MARK H. LUBBOCK
This is no history book-just a scrapbook of fragments. We pick and choose, laying a cherished oddment beside the quaint choice of a moment ago. Voices from the past. Songs of yesteryear. Events re-lived. This oddness, these strange juxtapositions are the fascination of a scrapbook

IRELAND CHORUS AND ORCHESTRA
Leader, PHILIP WHITEWAY
Conductor, E. GODFREY BROWN
Elgar's Oratorio
' The Music Makers'
(Op. 69) for contralto solo, chorus, and orchestra
Soloist, JOYCE NEWTON
This is a setting of a poem by Arthur O'Shaughnessy , extolling the music-makers and the dreamers of dreams as ' movers and shakers of the world ' ; for—
One man with a dream, at pleasure Shall go forth and conquer a crown ; And three with a new song's measure Can trample a Kingdom down.
The dream that was scorned yesterday becomes the reality of today. The music-makers, their ' souls with high music ringing', are hailed by those who yearn for the brighter future :-
You shall teach us your song's new numbers,
And things that we dreamed not before;
Yea, in spite of a dreamer who slumbers,
And a singer who sings no more.
It is notable that in this setting the composer has introduced a few brief quotations from some of his own major works-the symphonies, the ' Enigma ' Variations, The Dream of Gerontius, and others.

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.
