: THE BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
In his Preface to the eight symphonies of Boyce, which he has transcribed and* edited for strings and wind. Constant Lambert points out that 'William Boyce (1710-1779) does not at the present day enjoy the renown as an instrumental composer that is rightly his as a choral composer, but the neglect into which his instrumental works have fallen is unaccountable for they rank among the finest compositions of their time, not only in England but in Europe. The eight symphonies (a word which Boyce uses to describe what would nowadays be considered a concerto grosso) are not only of great technical and historical interest but have a vigour and charm that are rarely found together. One can find no better comment on these works than Burney's statement that " there is an original and sterling merit in his productions that gives to all his works a peculiar stamp and character of his own for strength, clearness, and facility, without any mixture of styles " '.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
