BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Leader, J. Mouland Begbie )
Conducted by Berthold Goldschmidt
Ildebrando Pizzetti, who last month celebrated his seventy-second birthday, wrote nis Three Preludes to Oedipus Rex in 1904. They were commissioned for a performance of Sophocles' tragedy at the Teatro Olimpia in Milan.
Howard Ferguson's Partita, which was written in 1937, exists in two versions, one for two pianos and this one for orchestra; though neither can be said to be an arrangement of the other, each being separately conceived for its medium. There are four movements: -Allegretto pesante (preceded by a slow and sombre introducion); Allegro un poco agitato; Andante un poco mosso; and Allegro con spirito.
Deryck Cooke


Leader: J. Mouland Begbie

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.
