: THE BBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward The Royal Fireworks, for which
Handel wrote the special music, were to celebrate the peace of Aixla-Chapelle. The show was executed on a very large and expensive scale, and it took place in the Green Park, London, near the end facing towards St. James's, where a great wooden structure was erected with symbolic figures, one group representing the king in the act of handing peace to Britannia herself. The occasion aroused enormous public interest, but, unfortunately, the fireworks were rather a fiasco, and before the end of the evening the wooden building itself was burned down. The only really successful part of the entertainment was Handel's music, which was played by a big, imposing orchestra, on a gallery of the fireworks building, and the music was punctuated by the firing of cannons

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.
