Artists tend to withdraw farther and farther within themselves" as they grow older and Sibelius's Seventh
Symphony, composed in 1924 is perhaps the most introspective of all his works. It is certainly the most severely condensed. Indeed, measured by mere text-book definitions, it is not a symphony at all for it consists of only one movement But into this single movement is packed enough thought to fill out any symphony of normal length. No break or padding interrupts the continuity of the argument. Even the changes of tempo, big as they are, occur gradually and almost imperceptibly.
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.
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.
