Part 2
At the first performance in 1808 Beethoven repeated the whole of the scherzo and trio -a procedure familiar to us in his Fourth, Sixth, and Seventh Symphonies, but not in the Fifth. Oddly enough, he left in the big repeat of the first section of the finale; but conductors nearly always omit this, perhaps feeling that it upsets the proportions of the work. With the extra repetition of the scherzo and trio, however, the repeat of the finale's exposition becomes obviously essential, if only to delay more strikingly the sudden reappearance of the obsessive scherzo theme later on. Beethoven's instructions about shortening the scherzo are not Perfectly clear; whatever one's views, it can only be exciting to hear the symphony in the form in which he first gave it to the world.

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.
