Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
Svendsen was the son of a military bandmaster and held such a post himself while only in his teens. He had some experience, too, as an orchestral musician, and when only twenty-one set out on a tour of Sweden and Northern Germany. Two years later he obtained a grant from Charles XV to enable him to carry on his studies of the violin. Then misfortune overtook him, and paralysis of one of his hands brought his career as a violinist to an end, and he was obliged to devote himself entirely to composition and conducting. For many years he was conductor of the musical association in Christiania, and in 1883 he became Court conductor at Copenhagen.
Among Svendsen's works are two symphonies, No. 1, in D, and No. 2, in B flat, both of which strongly adhere to the classical design, though showing considerable individuality in melodic invention and orchestration.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
