Vaughan Williams made the first sketches for his Sea Symphony in 1903. Out of these sketches grew the Scherzo, ' The Waves ', and the slow movement, ' On the Beach at Night alone '. The actual composition of the work -extended over a period of six years, and finally it was finished in 1909. A year later was given its. first performance at the Leeds Festival.
This work was the outcome of Vaughan Williams's -admiration for Walt Whitman 's poems, ' Leaves of Grass The first movement is based. on verses from ' Song of the Exposition ' and ' Sea Drift'. The second and third movements also come from ' Sea Drift ', and the fourth movement is based on verses from the fifth, eighth, and ninth sections of ' Passage to India '.
This symphony of Vaughan Williams is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and moving works that is connected with the sea.

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.
