Conductor. Dimitri Mitropoulos on gramophone records
Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony (1953) was introduced to this country by Sir Adrian Boult at a concert in the Royal Festival Hall at Easter this year. The predominant mood is tragic, notably in the long opening slow movement and in the introduction to the finale. The second movement is a boisterous allegro, the third an allegretto.

Norbert Brainin (violin) Siegmund Nissel (violin)

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.
