: Mr. R. H. GRETTON : 'Some Makers of Modern Politics-IV, Disraeli and the Making of an Opposition'

DISRAELI'S greatest achievement-though he would never have confessed it and would, indeed, have been harrowed to hear it suspected-was that he could give to a body of men, coalescing politically in a mood almost of dislike, an active entity and a moving spirit. The death of Palmerston left a bad gap in the Liberal ranks. More and more inclined to make the nation healthy, wealthy, and wise, they had no answer to the question, What for ? It was Disraeli who gave them the answer; to be an empire that the world must listen to when it spoke.

: A CONCERT

THE WESTMINSTER SINGERS THE SQUIRE CELESTE OCTET
A SPECIAL interest, although a melancholy one, is lent to the Gilbert and Sullivan operas just now by the d struction of the old Savoy Theatre.
Built by D'Oyly Carte specially for them, it was for so long their own home that the operas are just as well known by its name as by their authors'. No doubt the new edifice which will rise from the ruins will show many improvements, but for the generation which heard its Gilbert and Sullivan in the original theatre, it is sad to know that almost nothing of it remains
Jhe Pirates of Penzance, the fifth of the long series, coming immediately after H.M.S. Pinafore, was not originally produced there, the theatre having been built only in time for part of the long run of Patience, the sixth opera. The
Pirates had its copyright performance at Paignton at the very end of 1879. almost at the same time that New York heard its brilliant first production, with such famous Savoyards as Jessie Bond. Rosina Brandram , and Alice Barnett all in the cast. In London The Pirates had a run of nearly four hundred nights, and has ever since maintained- its strong hold on the affections of music lovers everywhere, or at any rate of the Gilbert and Sullivan disciples, which is nearly the same thing.

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.
