The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Overture, Prometheus
3.51 Jena Symphony in C (attributed to Beethoven)
1 Adagio-Allegro vivace. 2 Adagio cantabile. 3 Minuetto. 4 Allegro
Some years ago the MS. orchestral parts of a symphony were discovered in the archives of the Music Academy in Jena, a very old society closely connected with the University there. It has never been definitely established that the work is by Beethoven, but certain characteristics of the music have led some of the experts to believe that this symphony is an early work of the master. Although it has no great musical value, it remains, if genuine, a very interesting example of the composer's early efforts.
4.26 Symphony No. 6, in F, Op. 68
(Pastoral)
1 Cheerful impressions on arrival in the country (Allegro ma non troppo). 2 By the Brook (Andante molto moto). 3 Peasant merry-making and storm (Allegro). 4 Shepherds' Song-Glad and thankful feelings after the storm (Allegretto)

: THE STORY OF FLODDEN

Colonel G. F. T. Leather
Four hundred and twenty-five years ago today the famous battle between the Scots and English, in which the former were defeated and their king,
James IV, was killed, was fought at
Flodden Field, Northumberland.
Flodden has always been considered one of the most romantic and tactically interesting battles in history. Colonel Leather, of Middleton Hall nearby, knows every inch of the ground and has made a most careful study of the day's events.
He first made a serious study of the fight when the Royal English
Forestry Society visited the Scottish border for their annual excursion.
Their last day was spent at Ford
Castle, Etal, and Flodden Field, and as a description of the battle was part of the programme, someone had to study the matter. Colonel Leather accepted the responsibility and is now a leading authority on the battle.

: 'THE SNAKE CHARMERS OF EGYPT'

K. R. McPherson
Towards the close of his service under the Egyptian Government,
Kenneth McPherson determined to discover whether the mystifying performances of the Egyptian snake-charmers were really genuine or were dependent upon expert trickery
This evening he will describe one particular investigation in detail.
Listeners will remember that only last week Godfrey Locker-Lampson described his very similar experiences of Egyptian snake-charming and will be interested to compare the two accounts.

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.
