Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
The occasion which gave the Occasional Overture and the Occasional Oratorio their name was the failure of the Young Pretender and his Highlanders to reach London during the rising of 1745. Handel's position in the music of that day was almost parallel with that of the Poet Laureate; on all occasions of public rejoicing or mourning, appropriate music was looked for from his hands.
The Overture is on a big scale, in accordance with the traditions of Handel's period, and is cast in four movements. The first is slow and solemn, with one little, stately tune running throughout. Without a break, the second brisk movement follows, a fugue on one short, concise subject. The third movement is a little slow air, serving as a prelude to the march that is the fourth movement. It is in two clear-cut sections, which are both repeated.

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.
