Conducted by H. FOSTER CLARK
Siegfried's Journey to the Rhine Wagner Symphony, No. 9 in C
Schubert I. Andante-Allegro ma non troppo ; 2. Andante con moto ; 3. Scherzo ; 4. Allegro vivace
This is the ' great' C major Symphony. often numbered seven '. The numbering of Schubert's symphonies is a matter still open to debate. Everyone agrees about the first six, but after that the trouble begins. One well-known German edition puts the C major next, calling the ' Unfinished ' No. 8 (although it was written six years earlier), and this somewhat illogical numbering has been widely adopted.
It seems more sensible to reckon the nearly finished E major Symphony (completed by Weingartner) as No. 7 ; the ' Unfinished ' remains No. 8, and the C major becomes No. 9-unless we decide to include the semi-mythical ' Gastein' Symphony, in which case the C major would become No. 10.

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.
