: AN ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

The BBC
Scottish Orchestra
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conducted by Ian Whyte
Philip Halstead (pianoforte) Mozart's Piano Concerto in D minor was written in 1785, when he was at the height of his powers. His father had just come to stay with him and his wife in Vienna, and the very day after his arrival heard his son play this new composition at one of his own subscription concerts. That same night the delighted father wrote to his daughter: Wolfgang gave a new and first-rate piano concerto at which the copyist was still working yesterday when we arrived, and your brother had not had time even to play through the rondo, as he had to look over the copyist's work. The (passionately excited) Concerto is in D minor.'

: 'THE LINE OF KINGS

'For 'tis your thoughts that now must deck our Kings,
Carry them here and there ; jumping o'er times,
Turning th' accomplishment of many years
Into an hour-glass
The programme devised by J. D. Mackie and John Gough
Production by John Gough
' The Line of Kings', which was Scotland's chief contribution to the broadcast Silver Jubilee celebrations, is being revived as a prelude to the entry of Their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth into Edinburgh tomorrow. The programme is intended to show the continuity of the lineage of Their
Majesties from the time of Malcolm Canmore. The task of covering adequately some nine hundred years of royal history in less than an hour is, of course, an impossible one. By an adroit use of proclamation, narration, and quotation, together with music and sound effect it is confidently expected, however, that a thrilling impression in sound will be attainable.

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.
