The ' Fidelio ' Overture is the fourth and last composed by Beethoven for his one opera. He wrote it on the occasion of a revival of the opera in 1814. He had the idea of revising the whole work, hut in the main contented himself with writing this new overture. As a matter of fact, it was not ready for the revival, and another overture was played instead. Nowadays, however, at performances of Fidelio the ' Fidelio ' Overture is played as a prelude to the opera, while the more popular overture, Leonora No. 3, is played later between the acts.

The BBC v. The Listeners

: THE BBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Led by Ernest Element
Conducted by Eric Warr
Mozart's Symphony in E flat is scored for an orchestra consisting of strings, one flute, two clarinets, two bassoons, two horns, two trumpets, and timpani. Although composed about three years before his tragic death, and at a time when poverty and ill-health were doing their best to crush his spirit, there is no reflection in the E flat Symphony of his mental tribulation. The music is as happy and gay as anything could be, and if it reflected anything at all, it was the youthful and optimistic side of the composer's nature.

Henry Hall and his Orchestra from the Concert Hall, Empire
Exhibition (Scotland)
This week one of the great attractions of the Glasgow Exhibition is a man who used to broadcast from Gleneagles, not so very far away from Glasgow, before he came to London and Broadcasting House to win international fame. In the years he spent as Director of the late BBC Dance Orchestra he became known to everyone, and made the reputations of Phyllis Robbins, Les Allen, Kitty Masters, Dan Donovan , Len Berman , George Elrick , and many others.
Henry Hall is now on tour in Great Britain, and listeners from all over the country will give him a welcome tonight. He is broadcasting again on Friday.

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.

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.
