(By permission of Lieut.-Col. J.V. CAMPBELL, V.C.)
A PERFORMANCE of Masaniello in Brussels
A on August 25, 1S30, has been held partly responsible for the outbreak of the revolution in which the Dutch were driven out of Belgium. Be that as it may, it is generally agreed that this is the finest of all Auber's many (and popular) Operas. Instead of being merely pretty and tuneful, as are so many of his works, Masaniello has dramatic power and spirit. Wagner himself praised the work highly.
The Overture is chiefly made up of tunes from the Opera itself.
LAKME is the daughter of a fanatical Brahmin
Priest. She loves a British officer, and her father hates him.
She sings this song, disguised as a street singer, while her father, dressed as a beggar, and armed with a dagger, is searching for the officer, whom he means to murder, and Lakme seeks to save.
THE second song has often been ascribed to that Arne whom we know best-the Composer of When Daisies Pied and Rule, Britannia. It is really by his son, Michael, whose fame was not so great as that of his father, but who has, nevertheless, left us some charming music.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
