The words of the ' Songs of Farewell ' are taken, as so many of Delius's songs are, from the poems of Walt Whitman, the five stanzas which make up the whole being drawn from the poet's ' Songs of Parting' and ' Sands at Seventy '. ' Songs of Farewell' was one of the composer's last works which he dictated to Eric Fenby. In his book on Delius Mr. Fenby tells us that Delius ' dictated with great rapidity, and, with one or two exceptions-for instance, the closing bars of " Songs of Farewell "-the accompanying mood was one of frenzy and great physical activity. He could not keep still, but would wriggle about in his armchair gesticulating wildly with his hands to a degree that would have been impossible in a more collected mood until, bathed in perspiration he could go on no longer. Then he would be carried away exhausted '.

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.
