This afternoon the Angel will pilot his charges, Mark and Prudence, through the first book of Samuel and on to the end of the first chapter of the second book. It should not be difficult for him to conjure up the great judge who established Saul in the monarchy. He will introduce the children to David, and bring out, in the words and scenes of the Bible, Saul's jealousy of him and the eternal friendship between David and Jonathan. With commentary and music the scenes will be dramatically expressed, and will close with the great poem in which David laments over Saul and Jonathan.

Edmund Rubbra's Symphony was composed during the period April 1935 and January 1937, and first performed in April 1937 under Sir Adrian Boult at a BBC Concert of Contemporary Music. In an article in the Radio Times covering this performance Robin Hull said that "The writing throughout is essentially contrapuntal, taut and economical in effect, and marked by the steady growth and variation of ideas that the musical impulse dictates".

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.
