by Harry Moreton from the Guildhall, Plymouth Stanford's Organ Sonata No. 2 was written in 1916 and first performed the following year. Its title is the ' Eroica ', and it was composed as a tribute to the heroic spirit of the allied forces. The first movement is entitled 'Rheims', after the famous cathedral, but there is no clue given to the poetic basis of-the second movement. The third movement, however, is entitled ' Verdun ', which was later scored by the composer for full orchestra, in which version it was performed for the first time in 1918 under Sir Landon
Ronald at one of his Albert Hall
Sunday Afternoon concerts

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.
